Kershaw County School District Reviews

I went to an elementary, middle and high school in the Kershaw Country School District. I liked that there was a strong emphasis placed on developing reading and writing skills. I also appreciated the efforts that were put forth to instill environmental awareness into the students as well. There was also a wide variety of clubs that was offered that gave everyone an opportunity to join something that played to their strengths. Some changes that I would like to see in the district is some refurbishing in some of the schools. Many of them are poorly built and have issues such as major leaking. I would also like there to be more diversity awareness. I was a minority in the district and I have always felt like an outside because of it. I feel that there should be more emphasis placed on building a bridge between different ethnicities and races for a healthier school environment.

Kershaw County is a school district that is thriving with the help of the wonderful people of the community. As a senior, I have gone to school in Kershaw County my entire life, and I have been blessed with ample opportunities for success. Beginning in kindergarten, the teachers in Kershaw County School District have encouraged each student to love learning. I firmly believe that a love of knowledge is a key to success later in life! I know that the lessons I have learned in Kershaw County will be carried with me throughout life, and I could not be more thankful! With the help of teachers, faculty, parents, and town citizens, I know that myself and others were enriched with a tremendously beneficial education. Not only have they raised successful learners, but they have also given rise to the future leaders of America! I could not ask for a better school community!
As a parent of multiple children in Kershaw County I could not be happier with the environment my children are in everyday. The teachers have been nothing less than wonderful and care deeply for each student and work with each child to better themselves in both academics as well as in their daily lives. We love KCSD!
