Limestone County Schools Reviews

I have went to a Limestone County School since I was in Kindergarten. I love the atmosphere of my school and the people in it. I will soon be a senior and before I leave I would love to see a change in it. There should be better lunchroom food for students who don’t have a meal to go home to. More college ready classes need to be installed in the school to allow everyone to succeed in college. The school has pretty good staff, but they should attempt to teach on a more higher level. Overall, I absolutely love the Limestone County School that I attend, and I would recommend it to anyone else!

Limestone County Schools are one of the leaders in the state for K-12 in terms of identifying, screening, and serving students with dyslexic tendencies. They are training all K-2 classroom teachers in the multisensory program called Phonics First. They have about 85 teachers training in the science of reading professional learning course called LETRS.
Limestone county school has been struggling over the last several years. when I went, the schools were ok, but they needed lots of improvement. i remember that for many years we could not use the gym because the ceiling had fallen down. there were also many major problems with drugs and alcohol. It was not an environment that i enjoyed being in. However in recent years the schools had gotten better. they are starting to help students prepare for the real world, and they have fixed the buildings so that they are safe.
