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!

Bathrooms are HORRIBLE! The bathrooms barely have tissue! The food is, majority of the time, cold; and they serve the same thing every week! Roaches, ants, and spiders are everywhere. Administrators are rude; teachers are unfair and show favoritism and do not teach correctly.It smells like weed all the time.
Not all Clayton County Schools are the same. It really just depends on which one you choose to go to. I attended Lovejoy High School, My first couple of years i enjoyed it. Administration was great and their council department was amazing and very helpful. Being there made kids want to open up and join clubs. Clayton County Schools sports was something you wouldn’t want to miss out on. Education has improved since my freshman year it’s amazing. With the right teachers and sponsors Clayton county schools have changed in a great way . If i had to recommend them to Clayton county schools i would. Operation Graduation as we always say.
