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 love Cobb County! I have always loved learning and thriving in this community. There is tons of diversity, caring teachers and staff, and a safe and secure environment. Everyone cares about each other. I have not faced any problems in this county. The only downside is that there is a bit of a lack in club involvement and school spirit at my personal school. I wish that would change but that's the only thing! I definitely love this area and recommend it to anyone.
Sprayberry High School is the most outstanding! The teachers are inspiring and are amazing! The Principal is also wonderful and the administration is consistently improving and updating the school. Absolutely amazing and NO complaints! There are exceptional courses which are rigorous and the block schedule is perfect to aid the workload. 10/10 would recommend.
