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!

The teachers work very hard and do their best to deliver lessons to the students. The schools are generally clean. Some issues with insects in cold weather. Generally there are enough lockers. I would like to see more excited teachers. Teachers who love their job, instead of out of obligation. It would also be amazing if they didn't need so many portables. During really high or low temps they become unpleasant. I would also like to see English books to be updated. The math classes got books before the English classes and they refuse to use theirs. English class involves the book most of the time. It is concerning when administration doesn't know the difference between self-defense and fighting for pleasure. I think the music departments are doing the best they can do with their budget. I'd love to see them grow and keep up the heart they put into it. Overall they do the best with what they have.
My experience was one that has left me with a desire to pursue my dreams. My mom, teachers, coaches, and faculty staff have inspired me take an opportunity when it presents itself. They have prepared me to move on to the next level-college. In the area where I attended school, the teachers and guidance counselors always had an open door policy to students who needed help. I appreciate that along the way. If students didn't understand stand a subject, my teachers did not mind taking a few moments to pinpoint the lack of understanding to find out why something didn't make sense to me. I'm treated like a person and not another individual sitting in a desk.
