Love the people and community-driven education. People in the school system around McDowell County focus on pushing their students towards academic success.

As students climb the ladder, the schools make sure the students have traveled through their selected path in hopes of attaining the desired career.
I was technically homeschooled, but I attended Mcdowell Technical Community college while I was in High School via the dual enrollment program. It was an amazing experience. I was able to earn my Associates Degree in Science and my high school diploma within a month of each other. The faculty and staff are incredible. They work hard to make sure each and every student succeeds. The professors are remarkable! I could not have asked for a better place to prepare myself for college.
When starting at McDowell, I was a high school junior. I was new to the school and the state of North Carolina. My first day there was really and honestly welcoming. Being apart of band and honors courses, I found that the people were very kind and were open minded. It felt like home and everyone was so eager to meet me. The school system is well planned out and makes the learning setting fun. Subjects and courses are easier to grasp and the teachers often check to make sure all students are understanding the curriculum.
