Covington County Schools is a great system that works hard to ensure success for students. This year, they have focused on career preparation for students, offering opportunities for students attain college credits in technical programs and academic programs. I am very excited about this because my own kids will greatly benefit from this program. Thank you Covington County for working so hard for my kids!

Covington County School District is a rural school system in South Alabama. It is made up of nine community schools. There is a great family atmosphere in the schools and we have some of the best teachers anywhere around. Our school has a music program for the elementary kids and our high school has strong academic classes that prepare our kids for college. The high school also has a really good band program. We also have lots of kids that attend the local junior college and technical school for college credit. Parents are involved to help to make the school programs better.
Schools in this system are “student oriented” and individualize instruction for students. Schools are community schools with lots of parent/guardian involvement. Facilities are well maintained, teachers and aides are highly qualified, and resources are adequate.
