Lauderdale County Schools Reviews

My experiences at Lauderdale County are unforgettable. I made relationships that will last a lifetime, not only with students but teachers, too. My mom is a teacher here, and that makes my experience even sweeter. If I had one thing to change about Lauderdale County Schools, it would be that we need more field trips. When learning about something like space or historic figures, I think the students would understand it better if they were to see it. Overall, I am very pleased with Lauderdale County Schools.

I liked the administration, I was able to have conversations with the Board of Education through clubs. The superintendent was a very nice man. Something I would change would be equal sports facilities such as creating tennis courts for schools. I'd put air conditioners in gyms, put more money towards student based organizations.
All Lauderdale County Schools have high expectations for their students. The administration will do whatever it takes for their students to be highly successful. Each individual school has an excellent culture. They are all different but all successful. There is not much I would like to see change due to the success they already show. I highly recommend attending any Lauderdale County school.
