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.
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.
I feel they were very helpful with college preparations. They taught us exactly what we needed to know going into the next step of our life journey. They also made sure we understood things before moving onto new subjects. The only thing I would want to change would probably be the involvement of the parents or even guardians. They did not have many meetings with the students and their parents together. I feel by doing this it would help the parents understand more with the students school work and homework. And even make homework a more positive activity.
