I would like some teachers to take more effort, but overall the district was a great experience. I have went to the schools since the beginning. I have always loved going to west. I have a concern about the lunch food tho I feel as if it could be better. It's not that good, and this year with the covid-19 they can take advantage of the proportions that they are giving kids and especially for us high schoolers it's not enough to even settle out stomachs.

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.
