Floyd County Public Schools Reviews

Floyd County Schools in KY are small and average. My experience with Floyd County Public Schools has been frustrating honestly. There are many things I would wish to change about the schools, however, there are things that have been great. I love just about every teacher I've had, however, I wish we had more academic opportunities. The cafeteria food is terrible, absolutely terrible. We have had excellent college prep, my high school provided us with a college counselor. I do feel safe in our schools, we are provided an active police officer on campus through school hours. I feel that our administrators could be better, our schools has 3 principals. I have had to resolve and figure out things myself, even though it was the administrators jobs. I wish we would have been provided with more clubs and activities. Overall, my experience with Floyd County Public Schools could have been better.

My experience has been positive, but I wish my area had more diversity. We don’t have the room to be put full potential either, but what we do have is amazing!
I loved going to school in Floyd county, from first grade to my senior year I attended Floyd County public schools. Recently I got to attend the newly built high school, Floyd Central, and it was amazing. I was part of the first class to graduate there. The only thing I can think that Floyd County Public Schools need, is more clubs and safe places for kids to go when they’re having problems. We have counselors but we don’t have any gay-straight alliances and nothing for kids of color. However we do have many sports teams that help many students get close to people and have a support system.
