Harnett County Schools Reviews

I attended Harnett County Schools from K-12. While my time was winding down in my senior year, I noticed how my school was not preparing me for college, or in general the open world. There was rarely any oppoutunities that prepared us for the real world. The atomsphere at the school was non-unifying, everyone stuck their clics, including me. The administration was not very supportive of the students, did not care about student welfare, even in my senior year when the school officials failed to notify students of a potential school shooting and did not make it aware to parents, but was known by the students unknowingly to administration. When I began college it hit myself harder that I was not prepared.

Harnett County Schools do there best to keep kids engaged with their studies. The schools promote school spirit allowing many teenagers to get pumped for school sports such as football, basketball, softball, and even smaller sports such as swim and volleyball. Uniting for school sports really brings together class mates and friends. However, the schools could stress a little more the importance of college and SAT/ACT scores along with study prep. Many students were thrown into these during their junior year with little to no prep or even lots of last minute cramming.
