Haralson County Schools Reviews

One thing I can truly applaud Haralson County schools for is that the majority of the teachers TRULY care. They don’t just teach the students because it’s their job. It’s a passion for them and they truly care about the students and their well being. Since the faculty care so much about the well being of students, the campus is also rather safe. The administration really tends to stick to their rules, which can be a great thing for the safety of students. The school also has great programs and sports to be a part of. The campus itself (especially the bathrooms) could especially use some remodeling and special care. The student body lacks diversity, but you can’t expect much for the area anyways.

Haralson County Schools is a great school system with many wonderful teachers and coaches. Because it is in rural Georgia, it is not a large school, but it has a great learning environment.
The most amazing thing about HC is the family atmosphere. I didn’t realize how “homey” the atmosphere was until I ventured out into another city, like Athens. The band is what especially made my experience amazing. The people in it are your family, and no one would ever see to it that you’re having a bad day without trying to make you laugh. The teachers really care about their students here, and I’m proud to call it my home.
