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!

Overall, I had a good experience at Hardin County Public Schools. I had really great teachers who made things fun, it was easy to make friends , and I enjoyed coming to school. One thing that could improve is the diversity though. Some of my schools were very diverse while others really lacked diversity. It would be nice to see my former schools become more diverse in the upcoming years. One other thing is that I wish that there had been more options when it came to choosing classes. I would've loved to see different science classes and different launguages.
I love Hardin County Schools. Not only do I feel I have received an excellent education I believe I am ready to embark on my next journey which is college. Not only do I feel my education was amazing I feel the love that the schools had to offer my school in particular being North Hardin High School is very diverse and very loving and I wouldn't have wanted to spend my four years of high school anywhere else. Go Trojans! But all in all a wonderful district to learn in.
