Hamblen County School District Reviews

The school district is great, however there are things it lacks, just like every school district. There is good and bad in everything! You just have to see the positives in everything. I can sit and complain about what is wrong with the world and what is wrong with the school system, but in the end, it is not helping my child learn or get anywhere in life. Everything can't be perfect, but you can make the best with what you have. I wouldn't want my child in any other district.

I have lived in Hamblen county for almost 17 years now. Hamblen county is where I grew up, built relationships, and learned academically. My only concern is that social change and growth doesn't seem to be keeping up the economic growth and changes made to our county. Schools show strong amounts of tension among other racial, social, and even ethnic groups. As it is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I would like to bring this issue to light and ask school administrations as well as the Board to allow students more opportunities to find what unites them as a whole rather than breaking them down. Students respond more to positive reinforcement and listening to their opinions, especially in high school, instead of being treated like a factory assembly line.
The education provided by Hamblen County is top-notch. The teachers know what they're teaching, and actually care about the students enough to actually teach. There is a strong feeling of belongingness in the schools. They do their best to make sure that every kid has a place within the school they attend. Classes are challenging, but the teachers are very good at what they do, so almost every student can learn and grasp the concepts presented to them. The teachers also have a tendency to stay after school to assist any children that need help. Grades are fairly forgiving, as most teachers will give students the opportunity to correct bad work and have it re-graded. The only gripe I could have is that the schools themselves aren't typically in the best shape, and more money is spent building new parts of the schools rather than repairing the old parts.
