I have been attending schools in the Muscogee County School District ever since pre-kindergarten. I have had an amazing experience thus far, now that I am a senior, and looking back, I would never want to switch to a different school district. The administrators do a phenomenal job at running the district and they make sure that everyone has a fun and safe learning environment. This school district really prepares you for the next step, whether it be middle school, high school, or college. There is a school of the arts for students who wish to pursue a career in the arts like music, drama, etc. and there is a College Preparatory Magnet School named Columbus High School, in which I attend. Overall, living and attending school in this district has been a pleasant and bittersweet experience!

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.
Personally, in my 12 years of schooling, I had an amazing education in the public schooling system of Muscogee County. I can remember being encouraged each day since elementary school. I was constantly supported by my amazing teachers and peers. I never experienced bullying and was a very happy kid. Then throughout middle school, Midland Middle School, and high school, Northside High School, I still experienced the same support system. Making friends wasn't an issue and I even had great relationships with many of my teachers. I am grateful for the privilege of attending Muscogee County Schools.
