This district is not too bad. It can use some work on providing senior students with guidance for college and life after. I feel like this district is not diverse enough. Clubs are limited and it is not very exciting. Overall, the district is okay.

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.
