The Dekalb County School system has been able to provide an excellent education to me and my peers. As a student of Chamblee Charter High School, I was able to become a magnet student student and get a much better education than I would've at any other school. Over the past four years, I have been able to become heavily involved in my schools stem program. The county provided the funds for clubs, such as VEX Robotics Competition, Technology Student Association, and Electric Vehicle. Due to funding that the school system provided, I received an education has greatly prepared me for a true college education. Overall, Dekalb County has gone at no expense to ensure that all student are provided a quality education and can enter college with confidence that they can succeed. The county has provided a quality education, but lacks quality food for school breakfast and lunch. It has also ignored the infrastructure of many schools throughout the county.
I would love to see a change in the teacher and student interactions. Once teachers show care and enthusiasm with their students, students can find learning fun!
