what I would like barrow county to do is to increase the amount of books such as government books, must of the books are torn and very hard to even turn the page. But other than the the teaching and community is amazing! Wouldn't want to go to another school and I feel safe when I go there .

I think overall I had a great experience in the barrow county school system. They care about their students and reach out to help them. One thing I would change would be the tardy policy. Some students can’t help it and some just have rough mornings. They aren’t sympathetic to the students who are late and after 5/6 tardies they get ISS. Some straight A students who have never gotten in trouble and have ISS for tardies I think it’s ridiculous. You can be not even a minute late and they would send you to a tardy station which wastes more class time. There are a few other little changes I think they could undergo but other than that barrow county has good schools.
As a first time parent and educator, I was concerned moving to Barrow County. We attempted trying to attend the local and biggest child care facility that is available and had a horrible experience to the point of me staying home until LO started Kindergarten at Kennedy. She soared with the assistance of amazing teachers and a principle that goes above and beyond to make not only the parents comfortable but the student. I would, of course, do your research on deciding school districts and consider charter schools as well, but do not overlook what the awesome teachers at Kennedy are building-a ready, respectful, and responsible community.
