My experience attending a Chatham County school has been great. I would like to see more diversity within the schools, and I believe some of the food should be changed but overall I can't complain about my schools!

I loved that Chatham County Schools were willing to offer AP and honors courses, despite the strain it put on the schools. There are only three high schools in the county, and the one I went to had to alternate AP Bio and AP Chem years because there weren't enough teachers. But they still did it.

I didn't like the "senior day" idea. It was basically elementary school field day... with Bojangles and yearbooks as well. Um, no.

However, I felt that the schools could have done better with getting students ready for college. The only students who cared about their education were in the AP and honors courses. Those in the standard classes were often loud, disruptive, etc. There was no follow through, that I saw, for those who were being rowdy and disruptive because they came right back.
Chatham county has employed very wonderful teachers, however the resources provided make it hard for all of the teachers to obtain what they need or want for classroom activities. Sports teams and other after school activities are generally pretty fun and involve a lot of the school.
