The Clarke-County School experiences are academically euphoric. With the use of advanced technological instruments and equipment, learning has never been easier for today's college students. The splash of different cultures on campus has brought waves of diverse entertainment such as Indian-hosted nights out or a quick pickup soccer game between classes. Sourcing all the energy to this euphoric experience would have to be Clarke County's mouth-watering food. The schools offer a great variety of different types of foods ranging from mediterranean wraps to Chinese squid salads. The school system is a second home for success-driven individuals like me!

I am a Junior in the Clarke County School District and I have learned so much throughout my years here. Ive learned to become friends people who I didnt even know. I learned how to give my best whenever something hard comes up. Ive learned to persevere and always keep my head high because I am the only one who makes the decisions for my self. Ive learned that every day we wake up stronger and we need to contribute something positive every day to our community to make it a better and enjoyful place to be at. Ive learned that diversity makes schools mote interesting and special because we learn from each other and give eachother the advice we need through experiences each individual as gone through to become stronger. Life is not what someone has or want to have but what they can get out of what they already have in their humble homes which is education, love, and manners. This district is an exellent resource of happiness and exitement to who may come here.
My experience with Clarke County Schools has been amazing over these past years. I’ve never dealt with a teacher who didn’t want me to be successful. All of my teachers have went a extra mile to see me succeed! The only thing I think should change about Clarke county schools is that they should have more activities and add on more classes to high schools that could really help students.
