Monongalia County Schools Reviews

The grading scale for high school students should be a 10 point scale, right now it is a 7 point. This can affect the students later in college. For example, someone from another state might have a "90" or an "a" in a subject, while a student in this district could have a"92" or a "b." Thus lowering the their average GPA. Although the student from a Monongalia district technically has the higher grade, the student from another state, will have the GPA. Which is only what colleges will see on your transcript.

Schools in Monongalia County have no shortage of great, hands-on teachers-- something that sets them apart from others in the state. They have exceptional, unique ways of teaching and form genuine relationships with their students, building a trust that makes kids so much more comfortable in the classroom. If one thing had to be changed in Monongalia County schools, it would be the involvement of the administration. Actually seeing or speaking to the individuals that have the power to improve something in the school system or solve a problem would be very beneficial in ensuring that it is solved quickly and efficiently. More importantly, involvement is a key factor in a running a school smoothly; if students see effort from teachers and administration, they are more likely to put forth effort themselves.
Mon County’s schools excel in creating academic opportunities for their students. Courses range in an array of opportunities for students to pick and choose their preferred paths of learning and development, including varied assortments of AP and elective classes not seen anywhere else in the state, resulting in students more ready to take on the world. However, the school is lacking in terms of facilities and funding for educators. This issue may have to do directly with the income from the state, but nonetheless it persists and drives the quality of our education down. For Mon County schools to improve, more funding must be placed in the hands of educators.
