Habersham County Schools is a public school system. It is in a beautiful, rural area of Northeast Georgia. It has grown a lot over the past few years, but it is still small enough so that each student has a place. My experience in this school system has been very positive, and I have had many opportunities to participate in anything I wanted to. I have played basketball since I was 5 years old, and I just finished my last season as a senior on the varsity Lady Raider team. All programs from arts and athletics to academics have strong foundations in which to aspire to become a part of. The community here in Habersham is very supportive of the school system. I am proud to say that I am part of the Raider Nation. Once a Raider, always a Raider!

Habersham County Schools are great for the most part, but compared to other schools it doesn't seem like the right fit for me. I wish there were more opportunities to be involved in classes that are focused on my career pathway. Also, the school lacks in diversity, but I believe the the school will take me to where I need to go in the future.
I spent my elementary years and one middle school year in the Habersham County School system, and it was okay. I left the public school system in seventh grade for a private school experience only to return to public school for my senior year. I am impressed with the dual-enrollment program at Habersham County Schools.
