Lowndes County Schools Reviews

The school system encouraged students to learn and be the best they can be. Big enforcement on the "no child left behind policy", made kids feel as if they will all succeed no matter what the circumstances are. A change that could happen would be possibly changing dress code. In my opinion, the dress code is gender biased. Overall, the system is a good place to be and I would chose it over the city schools any day!
