Lee County Schools Reviews

Lee County offers some challenging courses with well qualified teachers. Most teachers offer opportunities for before school and after school help. A modified block schedule allows students to have one longer class period per week to work on labs, hands on activities, and protects. This schedule also allows one period a week where students can receive additional help in areas that they need or simply to catch up on homework and assignments. Having the opportunity to participate in dual enrollment classes is also a big plus. However, Lee County does not have text books which makes it extremely difficult for parents to help their students at home or for students to preview information or further read up on a topic at home.

I loved my years in the Lee County School System! My teachers were excellent, and they offered a variety of classes including Honors and AP classes! I also currently work with this school system while I’m in college; I work with the after school program.
I guess I enjoyed my years at Lee County Schools. All of the schools before high school were very enjoyable and provided me with adequate education and prepared me for college. I would like a better one on one time with counselors about college classes and which classes to take. The new administration was also problematic with students and her new rules made us very untrusting and disrespectful to her. All and all, i would say the school is about 3.5/5 because of the lack of college preparation and small amount of CTAE classes for students to discover what they enjoy. There is also little student involvement in the school other than sports.
