Clayton County Schools Reviews
The school that I attended is a Fine Arts High School, always putting music and arts above academics when academics was the factor that was most important when applying for colleges. Also, because of the high consideration for arts, sports were banned from our school, and therefore, we were unable to do anything outside of classes, arts, and clubs. However, the clubs and activities that were offered were extremely diverse, including clubs like Anime Club, Environmental Club, HOSA, and much more! Overall, I would not recommend attending this school, only because the Administrators care more about their paychecks and reputation than about the actual students.
I’ve been apart of CCPS since I started school and there have definetly been major improvements thus far. Our community has become more involved and we are starting to get more resources into the classrooms. We even have a newly built performing arts school where students can express their creativities during school hours. Our county is still considered a “economically challenged” community and still struggle in that area. They struggle with providing quality school lunch and having quality teachers at times, but we still manage to pull through. Overall, I would say Clayton County still has some improving to do, but we definetly do our best!
Teachers should be paired with their degree when teaching students. I've also experienced teachers are move involved with athletes rather than making sure the students excel. I personally don't depend on my teachers I self educate myself by reading the materials given. Also Clayton lacks communication when it comes to who handles what? When it comes to academics. Lastly, they need to implement more culture diversity when it comes to race. Majority of the teachers are black. Have better school board educators. I feel Clayton county in my opinion should adopt other programs as seen in other school districts with winning performance. I think the students would do better because they will have something to challenge themselves. Examples would be have a Lacrosse team, tennis teams and reach more out into the county. One of the biggest fall back is they need more problems for disadvantage youth.
