During my schooling in this district things have changed and some stay the same. I understand that a simple petition can't change anything but I wish us students voice stood out if the adults gave us a chance. Things that I wish could change we need textbooks, some students can't rely off of notes for big tests like the Milestones or our past assigassignments. We also need better facilities especially in the older schools our buildings are falling apart, literally! The teachers don't care to give out the proper equipment in any circumstance. School funding is "supposed" to be very tight but when there is a game everyone is in attendance spending all of their money. The food is okay to say the least. The staff are very nice and humble. I gave the rating a 3 because even though our schools are ok, our school spirit is high and loyalty is strong.

I attended Muscogee County Schools from Pre-K all the way to my eighth grade year. In my opinion, the elementary schools are excellent. The staff within them are very supportive and help their students as much as they need throughout their journey with them. Parents were constantly involved too, whether it was for chaperoning field trips or even sitting in class to watch their child present a project. However, my middle school experience was poor. Developing friendships was a breeze and the friends I gained are still by my side today. It was the administration and how to school was presented that made it poor. Throughout all schools, no matter what county they’re in, present the “anti-bullying” slogan. However, when you address any administrator about the issue you’re having, they do not address the problem. They try to turn it on you, the victim. As I am finishing off my highschool career, I am hoping that school systems will change. There is hope.
Overall, this is one of the best school districts I have been in. I moved from Mississippi to Georgia, seven years ago. In Mississippi, I did not have the tools and skills that I have today. Being in this school district, I have learned the importance of having an education while also having fun doing so. The teachers are very hands on, active with the students, and pushes every student to the best of their ability. Everyone is treated equally and I can truly say that no child is left behind. I appreciate my education more and more each day and I look forward to going to school most days. I am a proud Hardaway Hawk!
