I have had an amazing experience with Candler County Schools! The teachers at CCS are amazing & have a strong passion for their job, the administration, sports, clubs and activities are all superb! There isn't anything that I would change about CCS, it's truly an outstanding school district.

The Candler County School System is ran off the privileges of big names in a small town; Meaning, only certain people with certain last names or status get a more easy, comfortable ride than someone who does not have that privilege. Discrimination and favoritism is highly played in this school system and I am almost certain that not everyone gets the same treatment in this school system.
