Cabarrus County Schools Reviews

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

I have atteneded Central Cabarrus High School. This school is filled with many smart and driven students. The teachers here are very helpful and they help the students achieve way beyond their goals. These teachers help us get ready for college by explaining what colleges and like and what they expect from us. Everything about this school is very encouraging. However, I would change what types of classes are offered. I would like to have a more variety of world languages other than Spanish and Chinese and more of a selection of AP classes. Other than that, Cabarrus County Schools is a great place to be enrolled at because they truly care and want all the students to succeed.
Some of the things I liked about Cabarrus County Schools are their athletic programs and diversity. I have enjoyed playing sports and participating in athletic fundraiser events for Cabarrus County. I also like how different cultures interact in a school setting . Most of the time, these students (from different backgrounds) get along fine in Cabarrus County Schools. What I would like to see changed, includes variation in the cafeteria food being served.
