I started first grade with HCS and have enjoyed all the schools I have attended. I feel very fortunate that each of the schools I attended had special programs going on that I was able to be a part of. I think Horry County Schools does a good job of creating unique learning opportunities for students who are serious about learning. Its not a perfect system, but I believe it is a good school system and always striving to improve. The administrators I have had contact with beyond my teachers truly seem to care and have been willing to assist, when I needed them to.

I loved going to St. James all my life. The criteria was interesting, the staff was very helpful and the students were very cool people. I miss going to St. James and anyone who lives on 707 should considered attending. Go Dolphins, Eagles and Sharks!
My experience with Horry County Schools was not bad. I went to the same district for twelve years. I would suggest changes with the way things are operated though. The way I rated the school was all in a honest way. I feel like public schools do not prepare enough for college. Not everyone goes to college after high school, but that area I feel was slacked in. When I got to college I learned more in one year than in almost four years. The experience with administration and teachers was extremely goods. The teachers and staff do care about students and how they are performing academically.
