Mobile County Schools Reviews

For one of the largest counties in Alabama, it does a decent job with keeping regulations up in almost every area. The exception is cafeteria food. I do appreciate how certain cafeteria workers will try to create a more diverse lunch menu, but the lunches are just repetative and losing their appeal as time goes on.
This county is also the first in Alabama to get the Cambridge program, a fast-paced and rigorous academic program. However, this program isn't well thought out as their scheduling isn't flxibile at all and they have no clear end goal for the student's within the program. Sadly, what should be a shining achievement for the school has quickly devolved into a glorified AP/ IB program.

Mobile County Schools are big on diversity, academics, and each High School has a specific career pathway program to ensure you are College Ready. I will be a rising senior at Davidson High School and I have been a part of the Engineering Pathway Integrated Curriculum (EPIC) Program since a freshman. Other schools have their own pathways such as Welding, Aerospace and Aviation, etc..The school system created these STEM pathways to make sure we are College Ready and give us an idea of what we want to do in life. There is something for everybody. They are currently working on a million dollar security system that was issued to us by a grant from the state. So as far as security goes, they are trying to make our schools safe. The food isn’t great, so I usually bring my own lunch. However, it is free so some people may think differently from my opinion. Overall Mobile County is a great and they are always working to improve and make our schools safe and up to date in technology.
My elementary experience with the Mobile County School system was very pleasant. The teachers I had during that time were very passionate about their jobs and their students. Because of that I was able to develop the learning skills that I needed to for the rest of my school career. Middle school and high school were a different story. My school was more relaxed which can cause many students to develop lackadaisical attitudes towards their school work. I would love to see more passionate teachers in all off the schools to push and encourage students better. Looking back I now wish that I had that extra push throughout my entire grade school career.
