Dare County Schools Reviews

I have been in Dare County schools since kindergarten and overall I cannot complain about my education. I have a received and excellent education and I am constantly being challenged. The extracurriculars at this school are outstanding. The clubs range from the Gamer Club to the A Capella Club to the Remote Operated Vehicles Club (ROV). Majority of our students are involved in at least one activity, whether it be a sports team, a club or an arts program. One thing I would change is the severity of disciplinary actions at our school. The best policy is equal punishment for everyone, but I suppose that's just life. Another thing I would change is that the most important thing is not sports, but again this has been an ongoing issue in the education system for years. All in all, the memories I have made here will last a lifetime and I wouldn't want it any other way.

I have spent four years at First Flight High School. It was horrible. Teachers didn't care about whether a student was really learning or not, all they cared about was their class rank when it came to state testing. First Flight High School only cares about it's soccer team and graduation rates. It's pathetic.
