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!

Lowndes County Schools provide an excellent educational opportunity to those who work hard. The heart of Lowndes County Schools is to educate to the best of one's ability every student that walks through their doors. This attitude is reflected from the superintendent on down. Lowndes County is constantly striving to improve, excel, and lead others through equipping students with the necessary educational fundamentals that will see them through life. In the Lowndes County School System, everyone learns from everyone. The concepts of teamwork and self responsibility are taught hand in hand.
What I liked most about Lowndes County Schools, is the sense of pride that every faculty member has. This made education a pleasant experience and something to look forward to. The only change I would recommend to the school system is to improve the quality of their lunches. The only downer I encountered throughout the school day was the taste of the lunches they provide. Being that I am very fond of consuming food, I would be very pleased with more of a variety in the meals provided.
