Cobb County Schools Reviews

I believe Cobb County is very peaceful. I rarely speak nor hear anyone speak negatively about Cobb County. Since elementary school my experience with Cobb County schools has opened the door for so many great opportunities. Teachers and administration are always there to help. The Cobb County board of education in general help to create an outstanding path for the leaders of tomorrow. In my high school there is something for everyone. Based on your interest you are given the opportunity to choose from a variety of clubs and organizations. Not only are there clubs to choose from but they have something for the athletes as well. There are many different sports to choose from such as soccer, basketball, swimming, dance, lacrosse, and many more. McEachern High School's open campus is very diverse. It is crazy how many different types of people and personalities you can run into. Cobb County is my home. I feel protected here because there is always someone or something to help!

I have really enjoyed being a Cobb County Student. The community at my school is so open and inviting and the teachers are helpful and kind to everyone. The admistraion is always striving to make the school a better place and make academics their first priority. The only thing that could be fixed about Cobb Schools is the schedule. We have many breaks and a very shutt summer. I wish that we could have a longer summer and less breaks, as it would be easier to get into a groove of the school year. Other than that I have loved Cobb schools!
I like the diversity within all school and generally the quality of the education being received. I would like to see the district allocate the resources equally to all schools in all areas. I feel that there are areas and schools within the county with specific advantages and access to new resources such as renewed facilities and academic equipment that other schools in other areas do not have access to. I would also like to see a change in the academic system currently in place as I feel that the amount of tests we take could never show the true capability of the students taking the test. The following questions I rated are based off of my experience at a Cobb County School, not my understanding of the county as a whole.
