Letcher County Public Schools Reviews

My experience has pretty great being in this school system is like being in a family. I've been on almost every athletic team and the coaches are great. Even though you barley learn things that prepare you for the ACT all the other class you learn a lot. They also don't prepare you for the outside world in which I think they should.

The staff is great, They really care about the kids, They make sure your kids learn every day but also knows how to make learning fun so that you enjoy coming. Sports are also very good someone always win district or region and always goes to state every year. They really care.
It is about 70/30 on which teachers care about what they're teaching. Most of the schools are old building but are still updated and not completely run down. The board is very fast to react to situation and problems along with the administration.
