Clay County School District Reviews

The Clay County School District has very good schools. Mine is a very good one because the teachers usually give their best to teach the students. The school itself is very neat and you can tell that not ALL the money goes into making a nice football field or basketball court. This is probably the best a public school can get to be completely honest. Though the teachers can be a pain at times, you can note that some of them actually care about you! The guidance staff are typically in a rush to get you in and out but they always leave you with at least one of your questions answered. Overall, great school and would definitely recommend.

The Clay County School district is full of hard working, passionate teachers and students alike, who are engaged in their classroom studies. Despite the satisfaction of truly learning something varies from student to student, a good majority of these teachers truly care and take concern for their student's academic success. The education system, being so pressed with standardized tests, limit students, however, to truly grasp a subject, as teachers do have to fly through their lesson plans, leaving some students to be left behind in completely understanding what was just covered.
Clay county has many options for its students as far as choosing a career path. Each school has its own specific areas of professional development opportunities. An example would be photography, digital media, culinary, and financing classes. I believe that these are great opportunities for students to learn about a subject that may actually develop into a career. However, not every class is offered at each of the schools and I believe this gives some students an advantage over others who may not have the same access to the same resources based on which school they attend.
