As a senior who has grown up within the Cherokee County School system, I have seen all of its high points and low points. Through it all, I would not want my kid to go any where else. The faculty and staff truly cares about the students and their success! All around a great school district.
Overall Cherokee county schools are pretty good. There are many great a amenities for students. River Ridge has a beautiful theater and amazing band, chorus, and drama rooms. River ridge offers a variety of different electives such as business, cooking, music, and computer classes. Students are able to explore their interests and see what they do and don’t like. Overall Cherokee county schools are pretty good, but there could definitely be an improvement in local reach out to students.
