Cabarrus County Schools Reviews

Cabarrus County Schools is an excellent school district with amazing programs such as the International Baccalaureate, STEM and early college. But I personally wished that they would diversify in certain aspects such as sports. There are many sports that are offered in surrounding counties such as lacrosse but aren't offered in Cabarrus County. Sports isn't necessarily a huge thing but for someone who loves to play sports, not being able to represent their school in the sport that they love, kind of stinks. I am a recent alumnus of Concord High School, where we bleed black and gold. School spirit is a huge thing there, and I finally felt like a part of the school, when I joined the then-sanctioned lacrosse team but that didn't last long due to County Board decisions. Other than that, Cabarrus County Schools is really good, with an amazing teachers, good administration and good quality education.

Cabarrus County Schools do not have enough funding. Textbooks are out of date, roaches are horrendous and ALL over the place! Cafeteria food is so scary! I haven't gone in there since my sophomore year! and I refused to eat almost everything in there my freshman year! Criteria for classes is all over the place and there are no classes that teach us how to be adults. Such as classes that teach us how to file our taxes or setting up insurance.
I graduated from a cabarrus county school and my experience was good! The teachers were always there to help me, even though a lot of them didn’t support my plans for the future.
