My overall experience was pretty good! I never had a huge problem with the teachers or administration. The resources were really good, I always had time to understand the material from elementary school to senior year to get my diploma. I'd say Lenoir county public school was always on top, and never made me feel out of the loop or nervous about school.
I've been in the Lenoir County Schools system for 12 years now and i have to say its been okay. I've had no problems other than teachers who can not control their classes in an orderly fashion. The athletics at the high school i attend, we're pretty solid. I attend Kinston High School. If you've heard of us, then you know we're pretty tough. We've had big time athletes emerge from here. Jerry Stackhouse, Brandon Ingram, Derek Rivers, Reggie Bullock and many more. With the frequent changes of principals, i feel that my school s shifting to a way better place than it was 3 years ago, my freshman year.
