Berkeley County Schools Reviews
This year (17/18) Berkeley County Schools has been very supportive of our teachers as they fought for their rights for better pay. It was amazing to see how involved they were and how much they cared for the well being of the students and the staff. They allowed the teachers to participate in this "walk out" without deducting their pay even further, or putting their jobs at risk. Berkeley County had made it possible during this time that those students in need of lunches would be fed. They stopped at nothing when it came to coming to the aid of those who needed them most. They could not have done a better job in making sure everyone was safe. All of the families, students and myself are forever grateful for the efforts of everyone in the Berkeley County Schools.
In Berkeley county we as a district were growing rapidly and you could tell the schools weren't ready and equipped for the change. Some classes got to be too full and felt as if they would burst out of the seems and most of these classes were managed poorly. Many of the teachers were nice, but few took action and we never scored incredibly high on testing. Overall, the schools that I went to were full of great people, but lacked good management.
I've been in the Berkeley County School system for 12 years! It's like a tight knit community. Those people in your elementary school most likely are in every other school you go to as well. There are teachers that actually care for their students and do all they can to help them in class and at any other time.
