Hernando County School District Reviews

In the 11 years of attending school in the Hernando County School District, I have met some of the best teachers who really care about the success of their students. I've always appreciated the great atmosphere of Central High School; however, Central is terribly underfunded and understaffed. Most of the supplies needed to keep a classroom running all year are bought and supplied by the teachers themselves, coming out of their own money. Instead of focusing on educating students and preparing them for college and getting a job, teachers are forced to teach useless standards and instead of actually learning anything important or useful,students are instead taught how to memorize information and regurgitate it on test day. Because the school is so underfunded, the technology is completely out of date; some of the computers at the school still run on Windows Vista, and many of the computers are old and falling apart. Lastly, the food is horrific: I would not feed a dog the school's food.

I've spent my whole life in Hernando County. My time here has been pretty good and I've enjoyed it. The people here are great, the teachers are great at what they do, and the school activities are really fun to attend. Some things I'd like to see change are the facilities. I believe that we need to renovate some of the buildings and bathrooms just to make the school seem more refreshed and new. Other than that, Hernando County has been nothing short of pleasant.
My experience with the Hernando County school has gone rather well my education performance within my school was top-notch; however, one complaint I have is that the schools did not have a lot of funding going towards them, so my schools could not afford much. There was also the issue of AP certified teachers who were rather unhelpful when it came to becoming prepared for the AP Exam. There were a lot of limitations on students as far as a strict dress code policy and cell phone policy.
