Cleveland County Schools Reviews

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.

I enjoy the fact we all come together when needed. I did not like the fact, it wasn't many resources. Not many, teachers spoke to student in regards to their future goals. To help the student get prepared. Not many teachers, communicated well with student. Nor did lunch, was not all that great!We need teaches to provide what needs to be learned, and almsgiving the student what needs be in order for that student to prosperous. On if the things, bringing back GOD, The main factor.
Cleveland County Schools is a good school system, specifically Union Elementary, Burns Middle, and Burns High Schools.
