Grady County Schools Reviews

A majority of schools within this rural area of Southwest Georgia receive inadequate funding, and students attending schools in the area suffer. Most of the materials used to conduct class are outdated including literature, tablets, computers, and desk. I am most familiar with the smells the wreak from the high school bathrooms since it is packed to its brim, but lacks custodians. There a few new areas of the high school, but these areas are aesthetically appealing. However, they are unfurnished - with a lack of technology and proper equipment. The redeeming portions of the school are the genuine and sincere teachers and staff, who often aid in more than just educational endeavors and that the school system offers a MOWR program that allows high school students to take local college classes at no cost. This enables students to leave campus which reduces crowding, but it comes at the expense of having most of the higher achieving students off of campus -reducing student-led leadership.

I have been to almost every school in Grady County and I believe it is a good district but not that great. I don't feel the high school is safe enough, or at least it wasn't when I graduated back in 2015. My sister currently has been transferred from Eastside Elementary to Shiver because she was easily failing. She never brought homework home or any books for us to help her study and she is in the 4th grade. She had been going to Eastside since pre-k and everything was fine until she got into 4th grade. Now that she is in Shiver, she is loving her teachers and as far as I know, she has homework that she finishes way before she gets home. We even have access to things we can study with her.
