Monongalia County Schools Reviews

I have had a wonderful experience in the public schools of Morgantown and feel as if I have had a strong education background. The teachers have been wonderful and care about their students success. I am currently in my 3rd year as an Animal Science major and can say I felt ready for college. The sport programs are also wonderful. The sport faculty also care about their students success in education. They care about teaching students responsibility, making sure students enjoy the game, and coaching students in order to have a successful season. One thing that I didn't always like was the cafeteria food. I feel as if schools could create healthier and tastier meals for students. The schools are also sure to update their facilities, but I wish they would update more important things. Overall, I have had a great experience in the public education in Morgantown, WV.

Go to another state where schools are newer and teachers are required more hours of student teaching before completing certification/education with upon being assessed on performance at the end of each year by parents other teachers and county administration. Also, updates by teachers of parents and children in classroom performance/attendance weekly. No child being left behind is no longer in any category. Education in WV is behind.
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.
