Fayette County Public Schools Reviews
Fayette County public school tries to provide students with the best education possible by offering advanced coursework and academic advancement opportunities. However, the county and schools fell short when it came to supporting students. I as well as many of my peers were under immense stress to get grades that measured up to top percentages. There was a lot of focus on numbers and simply being a good student. Unfortunately, the school failed to provide physical and emotional support to students. I found many of my peers drinking massive amounts of coffee instead of sleeping just to get a few extra points on a project due the next day. In addition to a challenging workload, students had to work extra hard to receive guidance outside the classroom. Communicating effectively with administration and counselors was difficult. Many students neglected to reach out at all because it saved time and was easier to get the information from online or from a previous student.
My experience at Fayette County Public Schools was excellent. As a student of Fayette County Public Schools for 7 years at Rising Starr Middle School and Starr's Mill High School, I spent lots of time in the school system. Over my 7 years, I had great teachers who served as an educator and were helpful and understanding with my life beyond the classroom. My teachers were respectful and taught me life lessons beyond the class curriculum. Other staff did an excellent job of keeping the school running smoothly. My counselor was a huge asset for me in the college admissions process. She helped me find which colleges would work best for me, and encouraged me to have reach schools and look beyond the state of Georgia. My counselor helped ensure I graduate on time and have enough rigor to apply to high quality schools. I have to give lots of credit to my teachers, coaches, counselor, and administrative staff for preparing me for life beyond high school.
Fayette County schools are extremely safe, the schools have gone taken several measures in order to keep the children safe. Many schools wait for a tragedy to take place either at their school or near them before they take safety precautions. Schools in Fayette county have implemented a check and choke system to make sure they know who enters the school and why they have. The only people that have access to the school are faculty and students. Although the schools have made great choices with the safety of the school, they have made poor choices financially. The school chose to pour money into a brand new football, softball, and baseball field rather than into things the school needs like new bathrooms. The bathrooms are broken and lacking materials but instead of paying to fix the bathrooms we received unneeded sports facilities. Once I graduate I would love to know that the school has poured money into things that the school really needs rather than things for sports.
