I have not really had any problems with Edgefield County School District. The only change I would like to see is more funding to my school. We are in need of some remodeling.
During the time I attended Strom Thurmond High school I personally thought it was a pretty good school to get an education. I developed a good rapport with my teachers as well as the staff; not to mention the harmonious relationships developed among friends. The academics and extracurricular activities were pretty awesome.
