Henry County Schools Reviews

Henry county is nice a place to attend schools but the experience can be even more better with these small things. First, our schools need more parent involvement. When a parent is involved in their child's education, it not only benefits the child but others around them too. Start a PTA (Parent and Teacher Association), just get involved! Next, diversity of different cultures must be recognized. Events such as cultural or diversity days allow students from different backgrounds to feel welcomed and unite as one despite unique ethnicities and nationalities. Finally, funding should go to all sports not just football and basketball. Other student-athletes aren't able to practice to the best of their ability because of lack of good facilities and equipment for their sport. Henry county schools could go above and beyond if we, as a community, can implement these things into our schools.

Henry County schools are paving the way for blended learning to be normalized in other areas and that has been an amazing thing to be a part of. Overall, my public school experience has been average, but I have attended one of the worst schools and one of the best schools in the county and from personal experience, funds are not evenly distributed among all of the schools. The schools on the lower side of average have needed repairs and maintenance for years, while the schools in better areas are having renovations done consistently. These schools also have more money going into their clubs and organizations, further separating them from the rest and earning the title of "elite". In addition to this, there is no focus anywhere in the county on preparing students for college. Counselors never see their students, and when they do they have nothing useful to provide.
Aside from homeschooling in kindergarten and part of 1st grade, I spent my educational career 1-12 in Henry County Schools. I feel I am well-prepared for college after graduating magna cum laude from Union Grove High School. The teachers in all of my schools were firm believers in rigor! I am thankful for the teachers that loved me and taught me so much. I am ready to spread my wings!
