School needs more funding! More diversity would help better this school. Better school lunches would improve my rating for this school. I like the small class room environments, because it makes it easier to follow along during instruction & it's easier to get one-on-one help.

I began Pre-K in Charlton County, and I graduated from this school system. I think it was as good as it could be given that it's located in a small town. Most of my teachers did their jobs the best that they could, but they can only do so much to influence the education system. I would love to see more AP and college-prep classes be introduced. I did not feel as prepared going into college when compared to other college students. I wish that there were more resources for students and parents to navigate FAFSA and college scholarships. I did not know much about any of that when I graduated. Students should be able to go into "the real world" feeling secure and prepared.
The teachers were willing to help you learn and encourage you to do your best. However, more communication need to be provided to students regarding obtaining scholarships, applying for college and other opportunities that are available.
