Beaufort high school is a really good school overall, but it has it’s flaws just like other schools. Such as I feel there could be more guidance counselor to student interaction times and some of the clubs could be more organized. Refering back to some of these negative qualities Beaufort High carries. If there was more time to really get to know your guidance counselor, then the students would be able to prepar more for their future. Also with some of the clubs being a little disorganized, there comes confusion on the information provided and how to get involved with them. I believe we should all take these somewhat small problems and create a better solution for them. So the upcoming students won’t have to struggle with problems that have already be dealt with. I would like to say thanks for hearing me out!

The schools are falling apart. There are so many ceiling leaks in the building. I love the teachers that teach. I think the schools need more disiciplin teciques for students who are always getting in trouble. Some teachers have no idea what they are doing so make sure students can actually learn when they have a substitute teacher or a long term teacher or even a brand new teacher that was quickly hired. I went through two years of my high school career without a teacher who new what they were doing! Freshman year they had to quickly hire a teacher and she had no idea what she was doing and my Sophomore year my teacher was diocesed with a rare disease that she could be teaching so I got to know her for less than 13 days and then she was gone for the rest the second semester, our substitute teacher had no idea what to do she spent most of the time getting into arguments with students because she didn’t finish things.
I loved attending Beaufort County District Schools! I have had some really brilliant teachers that have invested in my life. I have learned skills in my classes that helped me decide what I want to do when I graduate from high school. Each school that I attended had great teachers as well as extra-curricular activities that provided tons of volunteer opportunities. I have made life-long friends at school, and I would recommend this school system to anyone!
