Since moving from Miami, FL and the Dade County Public School District, I did not think I would like being in Jacksonville. My experience with Duval County Public School has been great. My school is safe and the district really works hard to make sure of that! I attend Samuel Wolfson High School for Advanced Studies and the highlight of my day is being with great friends and I am getting the best education!

Duval County school systems is very advanced in allowing and paving the way for students too become involved in their communities. DCPS has many ways to easily access resources for parents and students! When it comes to the school atmosphere there major improvements that are needed and as well as with the food provided for the students. Another thing to improved upon is teacher appreciation. These are some of the positive aspects and some improvements that should be considered for wonderful DCPS.
Duval public county to me is very horrible. The teachers aren’t up to standard, the administrators have every job in the world except theirs, and we basically eat the same thing every day! Not to mention some principles. I have one that prioritize things that aren’t merely important to the students.
