Muhlenberg County Public Schools Reviews

Muhlenberg County Schools have a lot of potential for a small county. Better financial decisions I believe would help the district greatly, as to avoid another budget incident like in 2015, when many teachers without tenure were pink-slipped. Other than that, the district itself is very nice and student-oriented. Plus lots of emphasis on trade as well as college to give students the options needed to meet all desires.

I really like the atmosphere and loving teachers. I am involved in many clubs and have been able to discover my calling in life. The agriculture department is wonderful and very sweet. I learn in ways that are best for me. I am allowed to express myself and my ideas freely. The food is either really good or absolutely terrible, but in general it is okay. I have made so many friends that will continue to be by my side for the rest of my days. I feel prepared and ready to the next phase in my life.
Muhlenberg County Schools offer many opportunities for interaction across all age groups. It allows students to grow in many aspects including academically and individually. However, there are some areas the school system is limited due to minimum connection to eligible professors and higher education programs.
