Morgan County Schools Reviews

I liked the overall vibes of all the students and staff. Everyone knows everyone in Morgan County. It was nice having teachers and other staff members that all students were comfortable around. I would like to see a change though in not just one school, but others as well. It seems as if all of Morgan County's money goes to one place. So I ask that all schools get better treatment, especially when it comes to the bathrooms!

Most of their staff rocks, but some seem to find it difficult dealing with special needs children. I believe with more education and understanding the environment would be perfect.
Overall, it was good. I do feel like I was not properly prepared for college and the real world. I think more focus should be put on what college is really about and how to apply for colleges and scholarships. We did not have that information readily available while I was there. Other than that, I feel as though I had a good experience in the Morgan County School system.
