As a student of Stanton college prep. the county treated us very well providing the appropriate materials, for the most part books were kept I good shape and laptops were distributed to every student. Also the schools provided many extra curricular activities. When the pandemic hit the district made sure kids still got meals if they needed and provided at home hot spots so that the students that were less fortunate could still take place in online schooling.
the school district was average because they didn't alott the proper funding to the schools and when they did give money it was for the things students actually needed.
My overall experience with DCPS was not the best. It all started when the food choice was changed by former first lady Michelle Obama. I just feel like Duval county public schools does not fulfill the roles of making the students feel safe. Not only that, voices are rarely heard when it comes to the student body .
Overall teachers in schools are good and care about the students. The programs in Gifted and the assistance given for IEPs and 504s is good.
School leaders (most of them) are more focused on getting more tax money than teaching students what they need to have a successful life.
Duval County definitely have funding for great technology. However, they stopped doing the mental health days and I don't feel like I'm as educated as I could have been.
What I like about DCPS is that they allow a great working opportunity with other students. The teachers I have had all my life have been wonderful and supportive. They are caring and teach us what we actually need to be taught.
Duval schools gives a good education for free. Lunches were free for this year, allowing access for all students. They also did fairly well with the shift to virtual learning in March 2020
A good thing was I was a part of a good program like Early College. I was able to earn college credit towards earning my AA degree. I graduated high school with both a diploma and an AA degree. Another good thing was I was able to earn high school credits while in middle school. The qualities of the schools were not so great, however. Schools were not able to afford a lot of materials, there was not any diversity among kids, the kids were unpleasant, and the teachers and staff were rude and seem like they did not care about their students.
I had a normal experience. I would say that something that could help with motivation would be having high marked students go on trips. When I was at Brentwood Elementary school, all the kids who had at least a 3 on the FCAT(now FSA) would get to go to Wild Adventures
My overall experience in elementary, middle and high school was extremely positive. I received a lot of academic and extracurricular support and feel ready to go to college.
Duval County public schools is a fresh breath of air as I am from Africa and a lot of the facilities that are provided here are foreign to me back home. The schools provide good food as well as the proper accommodations to ensure the best education you can receive. The staff care about your well being and work to assure that all your problems in class are tended to. Being apart of Duval County Public Schools is one of the best things that ever happened to me.
For the most part, teachers are nice. They care about our education and want us to do good. Especially the AP teachers. They know what it takes to excel in their class and do everything to help us succeed.
my 3 kids all go to Magnet Schools in Duval. We have had great success in our schools, and have no complaints.
Duval County Public schools could use some improvement when it comes to life skills such as finances, credit, saving, and ect.
I feel like Duval Public schools does their best to make sure every student is preparing for college. We often go thru a lot of misfortunes but they work hard to make sure they are providing us with the best.
I would like to see them approve on cleaning services, teachers, learning strategies, and technology.
