Bartow County Schools Reviews

The best things to me about Bartow county schools are the techers and the school culture. The teachers have always been amazing since kindergarten. They are always willing to help those of us that are willing and wanting to help ourselves. I love the fact that even though we move to different grades and move on to different schools, they still support their former students no matter what! I also love the culture! Everyone is accepted for who they are and we all try to celebrate each others differences. I love how my unique qualities and characteristics are celebrated!

A few things I like about Bartow County Schools is that they want all their students to succeed. They provide excellent resources to prepare high school students for college and future careers. The teachers and counselors always go out their way to make sure all the student are comfortable and getting their proper education. The schools offer a great variety of classes and give students the chance to be apart of a lot of unique clubs. Students at the school all treat each other the same. There is very little, if none, cases of bullying or students being discriminated against. There is no violence or negativity tolerated. The Bartow County School System is a very friendly and positive environment.
During elementary school I had amazing teachers and a great experience. At the middle school I had a great experience academically but the atmosphere of students is negative. High school so far has been okay. I have a very bad teacher, and many of my friends also have bad experiences with teachers as well. I think that there should be more administration coming into the class rooms and evaluating teachers.
