When I first attend to South Caldwell High School I was devastated. I did not want to move from my old high school. The teachers made me feel welcome to South Caldwell. The clubs and activities are good I only joined Future Business Leaders of America. We had fun activities and fundraiser. The administration and Facilities are nice and helpful to the students who attends to South Caldwell. There food is not so great but that goes for all public schools. South Caldwell make sure we are safe, they lock all doors at 8 o clock in the morning until school ends. All students and faculties have to wear a Id so we can recognize each other faces. Caldwell County Schools are great because they made sure we push ourselves to the next level and that was graduating and going off to college.

Being a student in Caldwell County has been a great experience. The close-knit environment is always welcoming and everyone you pass greets you nicely. Considering everyone knows everyone, it makes the schools more in tune with the students and their ability to teach in a great manner is on a whole different level than other places. Kids want to learn and what to do great in schools, I wouldn't change a thing!
I like going to Caldwell County schools because the schools are rural and the class sizes are not very big. There are different types of cubs to join and the teachers support the students that are in clubs. There is also a good diversity in the students and most all of the students back each other up. They also offer Communities in School and a lot of business men and women volunteer there time to work with the students that are in this program. As far as academics are concerned, it all depends on how much time the student puts into their classes. Every school offers tutoring and mentoring for any student that may need help.
