Columbia County Schools Reviews

I have gone to school in Columbia County since kindergarten, and of all those years in schooling I've enjoyed every year thoroughly! I've been exposed to fantastic teachers who have been able to focus on each student individually, ensuring they are getting the education they need. The administrators at all of the schools I've attended are constantly looking for opportunities to better the school for their students. High school was fearful for a freshman and confusing, therefore the country provided programs for seniors to help guide the freshman with classes to how to sign up for clubs and athletics. They manage of putting importance upon their seniors, giving them all the information they need to be successful, whether it is helping with schedules or SAT dates and study tools. They listen to the students and do as much as they can to create a better learning environment every year!

As a multiracial student with an academic fervor, I have had a bittersweet experience in Columbia County schools. I have been in many a class in which I am the only minority, and that is inherently ostracizing. Despite this, most teachers are incredibly warm--so long as I demonstrate tenacity! Resources coupled with a plethora of college level classes are the reasons I have to give my school system a four star rating.
When compared to other counties in our area, Columbia County ensures decent education to their students. Most of the teachers are excellent and care for the student's learning. Even though it is a good school district, they only care about good grades. While most of the teachers care, the district only desires high standard test scores and high graduation rate. They are determined, by any means, to make sure they keep the 98% graduation rate. Even if it means letting students graduate when they obviously should not.
