Greater Clark County Schools Reviews
Rating 4 out of 5 26 reviews
I enjoyed working with the staff that worked as a team. I was paid a decent wage. I meet some really good friends. The student cared about their learning.
The counselors at Jeffersonville High school were not helpful and pressure you into taking classes you are not interested in. The school is very socially toxic and run down.
They didn't invest to much in the child's future. They expected us to know what we wanted to do with our lives when we were 16 and put us in an academy for it that pretty much but a block on the different classes we could take. The Food was terrible, and some of the staff were continually rude to students for no reason
I like that there is a large variety of classes to choose from. I would like to see our student counselors be more helpful about our college choices and to help us and our parents both not to be so closed off from talking to our parents after all it is their money paying for our future.
I feel like teachers don't really prepare students for Life &/or College in the aspect that if an assignment is due the students can still turn it in late & still receive full credit. It is not like that in Life or College. There are no do overs. Also I feel like the schools are not protected enough. 1 school resource officers sitting at the front of the school cannot stop a crazy person especially if side doors are being left open.
Greater Clark is overall a great county to attend school. I attended school in the GCCS district for seven years. The only problem I faced was with sub teachers, or the schools not communicating well or getting out important information. Other than that, the staff and administrators are wonderful and truly care about the students. I would have no problem sending my children to school in the GCCS district in the future.
Greater Clark County Schools are bettering the school system. They are helping high school students decide what they want to do in the future by allowing students to take classes for the field they want to go in. I am very grateful for this.
This school is a pretty good place for your high school experience. Most of the teachers here are extremely qualified for their jobs and care about their students. You take a lot away from the classes and the atmosphere at school is normally pretty comfortable and safe feeling.
I don't see any problems it had, it's wonderful and a great opportunity to be in this community. I was glad I didn't miss it.
Greater Clark County schools have been great! I currently attend Jeffersonville high school and the programs there are wonderful, for example, the PRIDE program rewards any student with a variety of different prizes for good behavior.
Throughout my years in the Greater Clark County school system (more specifically Charlestown), I have really come to love it. Charlestown is a relatively small town and almost everyone knows each other. In all honesty, this has proven to be a blessing in disguise because you know someone will always have your back. I have been going to school here since pre-school, so I have actually grown up with a lot of my classmates. Also, most of the teachers in our schools graduated from the same high school they are teaching at so they are used to the atmosphere of that school. Another great thing is that all kids from each high school in the district get along well when we all attend certain field trips. We are all like one great big family in a sort of way. I has come to love Greater Clark County over the years and a part of me is sad that this is my senior year because it will be my last time attending a school in the district.
Greater Clark tries to keep students as safe and as educated as possible. I would like to see better communication from the admin to the students because when there is a disconnect students start to rebel. For example, backpacks are ban from the classroom. Students are frustrated because they are told it is a "safety hazard" but do not understand why it is a safety concern. If students were told why it is a safety hazard , they would understand.
Some of the teacher are very rude and treat the students terrible. you eat the same food everyday at lunch. The took away backpacks because of a few student that was bring illegal things to school.
Use of technology was far behind where it could be. The majority of teachers were wonderful and well trained and the administration was very experienced and helpful to students.
I love the opportunity they give to earn your Associate's degree while in high school. Also, the amount of AP and Honors classes offered are great. The chromebooks really helped while in school as well.
I would like to see teachers more involved with their students. Besides, that Jeffersonville High School prepared me very well for college. Among the many honors and AP classes I took, college was not much harder.
I grew up in the Greater Clark County school system. They have great academics and great curriculum. The teachers are amazing when it comes to students making sure each student has an equal chance of learning. All around great school district! They also don't leave children behind, they do what they have to make sure all students are successful!
