The Harrison County school District is not the worst but there needs to be a lot of improvements. For example, at my school the restrooms are never cleaned properly, the stall doors do not lock, and the girl’s restroom has flooded 4 times just this school year. Our sports programs like football and basketball are favorited and get a lot more funding than the music, theatre, and art programs and I along with many others don’t see how this is appropriate. Overall Harrison County does not have “bad” schools but there are a lot of changes that need to be made in order to make the students to feel more welcomed, excepted, and most importantly, safe. Our schools are struggling and someone needs to do something about it

Throughout my education at Harrison County schools, I received a decent level of education at sub-par schools. I encountered many great teachers and some teachers who seem to not know anything about the subject. Some of my teachers in high school were great about college preparation while some did not prepare me at all. Overall, my school experience wasn't bad but it definitely was not the greatest I could have received.
Lincoln High School is very similar to your average high school. However, I believe it differs from others in the way its students and teachers react with each other. I have been to many schools across the country and Lincoln High School has been my favorite school by far.
