The main thing I love about Hardin County Schools is the Early College and Career Center. EC3 has many opportunities for high schools students. They offer Health Sciences, Film. Welding, Automotive, and many more. At the end of 12 weeks students take a test in their area and earn real life certifications that can be used in the real world. As for me I have earned and EKG certification and a Phlebotomy certification. Hardin County Schools is leading kids to a great path. Through Hardin County Schools students leave college and career ready!

Although I believe that the overall school system is great, the student body is not so great. Many of the students in the school can come off very rude and a disturbance to the others around them. On the contrary, I really enjoy the music program. The music program seems to top everything else at the school. I would recommend this school to any other students.
I've been a student in Hardin county since the 3rd grade. I've had a wonderful experience with the teachers, other students and the great educational system. The involvement of a large diversity of sports and activities is really what makes Hardin county a great school district.
