Macon County School District Reviews
As a senior, my experience at Macon County High School has been great. Majority of the teachers are very involved in my academics and they pressure me in the best ways. They want what is best for me and most will do anything in their power to help me succeed. The high school has an amazing teaching program, it is called Teaching as a Profession (TAP). This program has three classes with an additional class that introduces you to the history of teaching and types of teaching. I really enjoyed this program. The high school has an amazing guidance counselor, she goes out of her way all of the time for the seniors. She looks into each and every senior's profile and helps us with anything that has to do with college. There are definitely bullying problems, more than there needs to be. They do discipline, however; I feel as if they discipline the wrong students sometimes. Other than that the Macon County School system is great.
Something I notice around my schools that really makes me feel welcome is that all the staff and students know you on a first name basis. All the staff at Macon County High School and the Macon County School District are amazing teachers and staff. They always make you feel welcome and always help you with any problem that comes along, whether it is a personal matter or an academic matter they are always there to listen and help you.
Macon County has a very rich sense of school pride. Everyone knows everyone. This small town feature allows students to support one another regularly and love one another wholeheartedly. However, we need better resources and facilities in order to become better.
