Citrus County Schools Reviews
The teachers are all very friendly and work to try to help as much as they can. I really enjoyed the sciences and psychology/sociology classes. I would like to see more student involvement throughout the entire school. I enjoyed the sports and coaches (though I only participated in a few sports), they tried their best to make the athletes understand the sport (if they didn't already) and understand what they might be doing wrong. They always tried to help if something was wrong. The schools do a good job of trying to get students and parents to be involved or enter programs through the schools (as far as I know, they haven't been too successful, but they are trying). The administrators did a good job of making sure the students were safe and knew what to do in certain situations, along with the resource officer. I went to school here all 12 grades and I never had an issue with a teacher, administrator, or any other aspect of the school.
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!
I wish to see the Citrus County School District grow, but unfortunately, they are held back by the fact that the county is a senior citizens community that lacks both age and racial diversity. New ideas and teaching methods need to be brought into effect. We are supposed to be teaching the future...well the future is forever evolving and growing. How can we prepare our students if we don't change and evolve to our time and surroundings?
