Guilford County Schools Reviews
What I have enjoyed about Guilford County schools is the amount of involvement the teachers have with their students. The teachers have a relationship with students that can help students feel more welcome and comfortable when communicating with teachers. Guilford County is also a very diverse place that can help many students feel comfortable in the environment. Though the place is welcoming there are certain things that need to be improved, such as the food and the amount of clubs or organizations. Though there are clubs they don't seem to be organized or to have a lot of involvement.
My name is Anna, I am currently a senior in high school, and I have been attending Guilford County Schools my entire life. At the moment, I am enrolled in Greensboro College Middle College. This is the fourth and last school I will attend inside Guilford County. Because I have grown up in this county, I feel I have a very concrete understanding of how it works. Guilford County schools has always been very responsive. If there are issues in the system, I have always known Guilford County Schools to correct the situation as quickly and efficiently as possible. I have never doubted the fact that I was in a secure school district. I have always put my education first, so it is very nice Guilford County does the same. There's really nothing I would change. I would simply encourage Guilford County Schools to keep acting swiftly and justly.
My experience in the Guilford County school system, has been full of ups and downs. The county as a whole has changed greatly since my first year in the county in both good and bad ways. The county is for the most part good at supporting students. Free and reduced lunch accessibility has improved, as well as the variety of classes available to students as increased. However, Guilford County schools needs to improve just about everything when it comes to teachers. Teachers benefits have decreased as well as the classroom funding. Teachers should NOT have to spend hundreds of dollars per year just to insure that every students gets a thorough and enjoyably education. The county is also not the best at communication. Other than that majority of the staff in the county is well spirited and the LOVE what they do which is encouraging.
