I liked Jordan's diverse vocational subjects and opportunities. It's like a technical college but in high school curricula. The Business Education fascinates me because after passing the designated Microsoft Office Exam you will a certificate for that software. When I was a student there, I received Microsoft Office Specialist Certificates for Excel and PowerPoint! This is such an amazing advantage especially because it's at no cost. They are top-notch in terms of Technology Education and Business Education. As as far the whole district, I strongly believe that the Physical Education curricula needs to step up... big time. It's so mind-boggling how up north you'd up and moving for the whole hour and down here sitting on benches. Participation needs to be mandatory if not book work or make it up after-school proving you can do the exercise. Uniforms is a must... hormones... sweat... oof. Written agendas for the day is essential for substitute teachers.

I had a great experience growing up in Muscogee County School District. I was taught by many wonderful teachers who actually cared about the well-being of their students and their families. The staff always wanted to best for me and they helped me become the person I am today. Without MCSD, I do not believe I would be in the position I am in today. There are so many opportunities that MCSD put in my life and I am so glad they did. I love MCSD and I hope that it gets even better for the future generations who enter this school district!
My experience with the Muscogee County school district has been overwhelmingly positive. I can only speak from experience at my own school within the district, but significant efforts from providing several types of AP classes to encouraging college tours are continually made to prepare students for college. Most recently, however, there has been a disparity in quality of education between virtual and in-person students. While I realize the nature of short-term changes that have been made, as well as the learning curve associated with virtual school for both students and teachers, I wish there was more consistent interaction in the classroom with virtual students as opposed to focusing primarily on those attending classes in person.
