Citrus County Schools Reviews

In comparison to the 7 schools I’ve attended, I can easily say this one was the best, and thankfully I graduated from this one in the year of 2014. My first day shocked me. I recall students being very nice and welcoming me into their groups and inviting me to lunch. Speaking of lunch, there is plenty of healthy options! Teachers were very engaging and did not make me feel like I had to show how much I know rather than focus on acquiring what I needed to be college ready. I felt very involved and valued as a member of the Lecanto School of Art and had the pleasure of going to the Ringling Museum and College in Sarasota. I attended the beautiful museum and loved going to a drawing class with my own canvas and model! It was a fantastic experience and I enjoyed going to my grad bash at Orlando Studios. I’m proud to say I graduated with a 3.4 as a Lecanto Panther!

As a senior at Citrus High who has been to Inverness Primary and Inverness Middle, I can say that Citrus County Schools are pretty good. At Citrus High, teacher attendance for regular classes tends to be poor; but, for honors and AP teachers it is rare that they miss a day for any reason other than mandatory professional development. The higher level teachers truly care about their students' success and well being. Those who are passionate are amazing teachers. Overall, good school.
All of the teachers I had cared deeply about the students and subjects. Other than that there wasn’t anything good going for the school. It was poorly run I had to wait an hour to see an administrator after food was thrown at me whilst I was in my junior ROTC uniform. My instructors for ROTC were furious but, no one else cared one bit it cost my family one hundred dollars to clean that uniform. Yet, those responsible didn’t receive any punishment what so ever. Over all, good teachers bad school and even worse administration.
