I would like to see the cafeteria food improve tremendously. At Halifax County Public Schools, there is a great environment to help achieve academic success. I like the way the teachers take time to make sure each individual student succeeds. Even though the school is not in the best condition, it is a great learning environment. The teachers and administrators really care for each student.

Halifax County Public schools have very good intentions, but need some help following through on them. The high school really needs some work. The bathrooms, classrooms, and maintenance need work. For the rest of the schools they seem pretty good. The food is alright. I do enjoy the teachers and the administrators. I really love how the high school offers college courses. It helps students prepare for college while still in high school. The variety of clubs and activities is very nice. The schools include a lot of diversity within students, teachers, and other staff members. All of the schools implement a very nice safety policy so students feel safe at all times. Parental involvement is a big thing through the schools. The sports are also very nice.
My experience at Halifax County Public Schools was, and still is very satisfying. Most of my teachers are very helpful. If I could change anything about it I would change the amount of time we have to eat lunch. I would also provide us with a study hall.
