Heard County Schools Reviews

I love Heard County School System. It is a very small community where you know someone everywhere you go. I enjoyed every day of school and graduated Valedictorian of my class. To me and my family we have always given our school system the highest of praise. We are so thankful for the great school it is and keeps getting better. Our county has beautiful schools and the facilities are far above any other school we traveled too for athletics. I also feel like we have the very best administrators and teachers, they really do care about the students. I feel very proud to be a part of the Heard County School System family.

I would give the ranking of 4.5 stars if they'd given the option. Heard County Schools are recognized with high test scores and athletics. Football being the main attraction during the fall, because this is a small country town. All of Heard County comes out to the games and even travels to support. The dress code is strict, but well arranged to make the students look professional. The teachers spend long hours preparing to best allow each student to comprehend the taught material. They go beyond the curriculum and teach life lessons as well. The Heard County School System is more than just a bunch of buildings and people, it's a family.
Most people would look at my small school and see nothing but a brick building with a few hundred kids buzzing around inside. A stranger could blink and completely miss the town as they pass through it. To me, though, this school is home. It had fostered my creativity and fueled me as I have grown up. The teachers care about me, and encourage independence and excellence. Heard County truly teaches "PRIDE."
