Chilton County Schools Reviews

I attended Chilton County schools my entire life and one thing I absolutely loved was how small it was. It was not always ideal, but looking back, the people I call my very best friends are people I have literally known and been in classes with since kindergarten. I feel that in a very large school setting, I may never have met them. I would love to see some changes involving fairness. I look back at my four years, specifically in highschool, and see that the kids who were branded as a little odd or weird got the short end of the stick, while jocks and cheerleaders might have been treated slightly better or given better chances by students, teachers and administrators. Not that anyone meant it, but I would love to see a more conscious effort for equality.

Chilton County does not have the money needed to maintain all the schools they have. It is common practice for the students to do without books, or technology compared to others in surrounding counties.
Chilton County High School was a great place to be. Teachers were willing to work with you and to teach you the material Overall it was a great school. My biggest concern would be college readiness as a lot of times they were not focused on after high school. However I believe they upgraded their resources and focus to this area.
