During the time I have attended Moore county schools I have had great times. Even though their were some challenges along the way which are in everything. I have learned a lot of things, I have even found myself from the help of teachers. More than anything I fell that the Moore county school district has help many kids accomplish their goals in life or even just has given us an extra push when they have saw a child in need or a child that hasn’t had anyone to show them what achievement looks like and with that I would like to say thank you to everyone who has helped me get to the place I am in now.
I moved to North Carolina was I was nine. When I entered high school, it was the last straw. Moore County Schools is very poor at budgeting the money for the two high schools in our county. Because of this, there was a very real possibility that the arts (orchestra, band, visual arts, etc.) would be cut. At the sister high school, CTE classes like Animal Science, Business, etc. would also be removed from curriculum. Students would attend and protest at the county meetings. Finally, the school board came to their senses and came up with the funding for the arts. However, it was disappointing that sports never have to worry about being cut, as they would receive new uniforms, a new field, and a new scoreboard. As an athlete and a student of the arts, both are important to me. Growing up with this school system was full of disappointments, they do not seem to have the best interests of ALL the students at heart.
