Review Leon County Schools
My experience with Leon County Schools has been amazing so far, and it's only my first year. I attend Florida State University and it is incredibly inclusive and engaging. The school is great at getting people from all walks of life together and involved. The school also had a program I was involved in that helped me prosper during my first year of college. One of the only issues I have experienced with this school is getting my hours transferred after taking a CLEP exam, which has been quite frustrating but hopefully will be fixed soon.
My overall experience with Leon County Schools has been Great. I have been going to my county school for 11 years and our schools here have some amazing teachers, they will work with you to the best of their ability to make sure you get out of there class and succeed. We get so many free tutoring opportunities that it is ridiculous but we're very thankful for that. Leon County schools provides a lot of clubs and activities, my favorite one is SGA. SGA helps us students to get involved with our school and show that our opinions do matter. All of the years that I have been attending Leon County schools I have never been in a dangerous situation, We have good safety measures that our administration ensure we practice so that everyone will know what to do if harm ever came onto our school's campus. The love for sports in this county is incredible since we are a college town. Leon county Schools provides almost every sport; along with those sports great coaches are provided as well.
