Lincoln County Schools Reviews

I liked quite a few of my teachers, typically my AP course teachers because they were passionate and interested in their topic. Many of my teachers however, I felt were less qualified to be teaching their area or field. I think the experience with Lincoln County depends on the school you attend. For example, Pumpkin Center, and North Lincoln High School are pretty good from my experience but I cannot accurately offer my opinion to other schools.

Lincoln county schools did not treat students as such, when tragedy happened it happened to the entire county. We were like a huge community wide family. We embrace each other when anything happens, not only that but teachers knew when to be teachers and when to be a friend.
Being a part of Lincoln County has truly benefitted me. I went to East Lincoln High School and they taught me so much that helped me with college life. While playing sports in high school, playing other schools in Lincoln County was great. Every school has something unique to offer its students. I would like to see some budgeting improvements. The schools barely had money to do anything extraordinary for the students education.
