Beaufort County Schools Reviews

I previously attended a Beaufort county charter school, which was a great school! The academics were fantastic, especially the English. It was a clean, nice school, and we as students were very well behaved. I switched to a normal public school in the eighth grade and the differences were drastic! The school was a lot less clean and the overall atmosphere was not as nice. I think the academic aspect of the public schools are fine, I really feel as though at this point (I'm in English 1 honors) the school is really lacking in English. The students are definitely not as nice, and there is so much violence; which is very disconcerting. I do think the teachers care, which is a very good thing. The teachers I have had seemed to actually enjoy teaching, and want their students to succeed. Overall, Beaufort county schools, are a good way to go

I go to a Montessori School in Beaufort County, and it is indeed the most fantastic experience. We are a tight-knit community with a little over 400 students from kindergarten to twelfth grade. I was tested for a learning disability when I was in the fourth grade, and my teachers never gave up on me, I am now in the top ten in my class, and I wouldn't be here if it weren't for the support of the community I call my family. Everyone in the school feels like sibling, cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. I am fortunate to of grown up in such a fantastic community.
Overall my years at Washington High School in Beaufort County has been terrible the education system is not up to par. The teachers do not care about the students nor do the administration. Students at Washington High School struggle to learn the curriculum that's being taught all because it is not being taught well by the fellow teachers and they won't take the time out to stop and try to break it down to were you will understand what is being taught. Washington High School staff would rather see you not attend school then try to learn something by going to class and I have seen this with my own eyes so, in conclusion, I will say Washington is not a good school to attend.
