This was the only school district I was with, and it was fantastic! The teachers, and administration in each school I went to were helpful (In mount pleasant), and their intentions were purely to help you prepare for the next thing in life. With their understanding actions, hopeful and respectful attitudes they made my experience wonderful!

Overall, Cabarrus County Schools does take care of their students. What Cabarrus County schools lacks is a sense of culture. Without a sense of culture present student morale is really low. At school events student attendance is really low all across the board. This makes the overall experience of high school lackluster when in reality it should be some of the best years of your life!
I moved from Anne Arundel County to Cabarrus County my sophomore year. I lived in a wealthy area and moving to Cabarrus County was kind of a culture shock, once you got passed that everyone was very sweet and welcoming. The counselors in this school system are not the best, they are not very accommodating, and they are not the best about reaching out to students. However, the math and science department are amazing! The teachers I have had or had worked with were always willing to stay after and teach the student way if need be. They truly wanted to help every student and help prepare them for their future. The teachers in the county truly do care about all of their students and want them to excel for the rest of their life
