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!
The subjects taught are challenging and helping to prepare students for college, and teachers help students willingly and make sure they understand the material taught in class. Schools contain students that are ethnically and financially diverse. Clubs at the schools mainly deal with academic matters and not something that would appeal to majority of students. More creative clubs would be necessary to help improve the schools. The schools also discouraged students from making their own clubs, which is necessary for people to become involved in a certain subject or activity and make different kinds of people. While schools practice fire drills and code red drills, the administration do not treat it like a real emergency which in turn causes the students to not take the drills seriously. In a real crisis, the school would be unprepared because of the improper practice of safety and administration.
