I grew up in the Catawba County School system. Throughout the years, the administration and staff treated every student as if they were their own. They made sure the curriculum taught not only next grade readiness but also life lessons. There was never a time I felt like other students were treated better than me or I was not getting the education I needed to succeed. I want to thank the Catawba County School system for building me up into a beautiful, intelligent, young lady.

Academics are great! Good curriculum. Counselors need to be more involved with students and communications need to be open with parents regarding students grades. Should meet with seniors monthly.
Catawba County Schools are great. Every teacher that I had helped prepare me for where I am today. They were well equipped and competent in what they were teaching. Overall the school system has amazing faculty and staff and are always making sure students have the best resources they need to succeed. One thing we could implement to help create a safer school system is bullying prevention, drug awareness, and more security in schools.
