Mecklenburg County Public Schools Reviews
Mecklenburg County Public School fosters a good environment for students, staff, and the community. Like any other school district, it has its downfalls and places where it excels. I do have to say that the MCPS school board may be selling the teachers short by not going to the Board of Supervisors inquiring on a county-wide teacher and bus driver wage (that is not 0.5%) they instead go to get $100 million dollars in funding for a school the majority of the community did not want. They are selling their students short by not offering classes that most schools in larger communities have, like French, Physics, etc. They are selling their community short by not adequately preparing students for careers in the workplace that does not deal with Car Mechanics, Cooking, Carpentry, Farming, or Nursing. There are currently 16 career clusters and MCPS has not risen to fulfill not one completely.
I would love for art and music to be more involved they statistically have shown to help students. Both of the two have been shown to help with memory with other subjects such as English, math, and sciences. If these are placed into curriculum more often grades would be significantly higher.
I want to see the academic level of the school increase because we are getting the bare minimum while other schools offer more advanced classes. Also I would like to see more diverse sports like lacrosse and swimming instead of the basic sports. Also other groups like the marching band and drama club do not receive much funding from the school but football and cheerleading do. There should be equal support throughout the school.
