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 loved the environment and atmosphere that pope high school had. The amount of amazing teachers and staff is unexplainable. Neighboring high school students always complained about their student life and how strict the teachers were. meanwhile, I was becoming BFFs with my teachers!
The Cobb County school district is a good education system for students to be a part of. The academics are at the top of the food chain, as far as public schooling in Georgia goes, and, as a bonus for sports fans, includes the fact that virtually no school systems come close to their level of proficiency in sports - in the immediate area that is. Among these attractions are exceptional food choices accompanied by clean facilities managed by an outstanding custodial staff. I could go on indefinitely about how great safety and anti-bullying policies are, or about the accepting atmosphere among most students and their peers. But there are areas where this school system does lack. Diversity is minimal - especially for advanced students the likelihood of seeing someone of a non-white ethnicity are very slim, and the counseling departments for upperclassmen could take more detailed steps to ensure college readiness for their students. But all in all this is a great system to be a part of
