Cleveland County Schools Reviews
Overall the Cleveland County School District was a very good one! Throughout my years there I have really enjoyed my teachers and appreciate the care they give to myself and my classmates! I have been taught not only the required classes but so many more life lessons from my teachers and sports coaches. The only thing that I personally didn’t like were a FEW teachers that you could tell were only there for their check and not because they truly care for the students.
I was a student in the Cleveland County School system for 7 years, and it was a nice experience for the most part. Most teachers were engaging and often knew a to beyond just the subject they were teaching. The each school zone was unique and had its own flair. Something I would like to see changed would be how scholarship opportunities are being presented. I attended Cleveland County Early College Highschool. The students were told about scholarships, but they would often be too specfic, so only a hand full could apply. Another problem was not having time to apply for them. Between taking highschool classes, college classes and extracurricular activites, time was limited.
What I like about Cleveland County Schools is the numerous amounts of opportunities that are open to students. So many ways to step in and get your name out there. Whether that be volunteer work, or shadowing a future desired career. Cleveland County schools has made numerous ways for the students to want to get involved. So that they can later better themselves. Something I would change is the superiority that sports has over academics.
