Maury County School District Reviews

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.
Highland Park is a horrible school, I have a video of the kids bathroom, literally poop everywhere, layers of Dirk on sink, walls and floors, I brought it to their attention they didn't seem bothered by it at all, so I went in a second time a few months later looked exactly the same, no wonder why my kids and others stayed sick all year, so disgusting, it's even worse that staff doesn't seem bothered by it like they feel it's completely normal, I've never seen a dirtier school EVER. The principal looks like she's high on benzos all the time literally looks wasted and by her response to the filth in her school, I would bet a million dollars that she's on something. Front office always has unqualified attendance clerks that are not professional. I asked to call my child down to the office one day because I needed to talk to her they asked me what for, ummm non of your business are you kidding me, all around I've never witnessed a school like this, STAY AWAY if all possible!!!
