Guilford County Schools Reviews

Being a war survivor from Monrovia, Liberia and being blessed to come to the America 14 years ago.Guilford County schools are where my education started! My first school in America was Hunter elementary, I would later go to Guilford middle and western Guilford high school. From my kindergarten teachers teaching me how to read and write.All the way up to my high school teachers, teaching me how to properly write essays.Teachers throughout my grade school years have been not only well educated to give students the best education they can get, but really care about their student's futures. The changes that would improve Guilford County schools are more life perpetration courses. I would also like to see more school events focused on keeping the peace and treating others kindly.Along with healthier food options with these things, I feel that Guilford county schools can be even better for current and future students.

I like that Guilford County Schools provides the tools needed for students to further their academic career. I also like how connections between colleges are created through college fairs and counselors. The one thing I do not like about Guilford County Schools is that sometimes things can become unorganized or delayed. By being disorganized students feel betrayed and disengaged in educational activities. Despite the flaws, Guilford County ensures the safety of students and allows students to make the decisions necessary to avoid harm.
My experience in Guilford County Schools was good. I been in Guilford County School since Pre-K all the way to 12th grade. The goal for Guilford County Schools is that failure isn't an opinion and I believe that Guilford County Schools don't want any of their students to fail but to have success. What I like about Guilford County Schools is that not only do meet their main goal but the they how to challenge their students with their strengths and help them with their weaknesses. The only things I would want to change to make Guilford County better is the diversity in schools, college readiness, food and that there will be more challenges academically and have more clubs/activities for the students to get involved in.
