I am currently a Senior in high school, here is a little about the Maury County school district. I have been in this district since I was in kindergarten, I have never had a bad experience within this district. They truly care about their students and staff and more importantly they want us as students to be very successful. I would highly suggest having your child to attend Maury County schools during their childhood.

I have attended Maury County Schools since kindergarten. During that span of time I attended an elementary, middle school, and high school. I feel I have had a excellent education with challenging classes. Extra curricular activities have been given to enhance my learning potential. I am a drama student and I well prepared to speak to others and in public situations. I feel confident I will have success in a post secondary school.
I realize that most of the teachers in this county are over worked and under payed. However this does not prevent them in teaching me what I need to know in their class.
I would like to see more clean air and environmentally friendly schools in my school district. Many schools such as my high school have mold and dust. These conditions in the building causes allergies to students and staff. This causes more sickness and absentees for all within the school.
In recent years, Maury County schools have become even better than they used to be. Dress code has been altered every year for the past 3 years and has begun allowing students to express themselves better. The School Board does it's best to listen to concerns coming from teachers, parents, and students. It also does well to recognize outstanding achievements made by students and teachers. While not the top county in the country, Maury county is doing its best to improve itself.
