The Forsyth County school educational system is the best by far when it comes down to preparing its students for college in a disciplinary and scholarly matter. Their institutional programs allow students to challenge themselves and test their capabilities through Ap and IB classes taught by overly qualified teachers. Despite the excellent institutional system, the high school that I had attended did, however, lack in cultural and social diversity. This factor did make it difficult for some students due to the feelings of being targeted on the grounds of being thought of as less than by others due to their racial backgrounds. Other than that and the typical bullying found existent in every school system, Forsyth County schools excel in their departments of education and safety precautions.
Forsyth county schools were really good for me because I enjoyed the academics and curriculum they offered. I grew up most of my life going to Forsyth County elementary, middle and high school. The teachers are great and really help you out with your education. They are not just interested in your school work but also outside of it. They want your best interests and to see you succeed in your future! I love the sports there and the activities your interested in too. Forsyth County would be one of my favorite schools and excellent overall experience!
