Nelson County Public Schools Reviews
Excellent school division with caring staff members and a supportive community. I have two high school students and have been in all the schools and involved. I believe in the saying - It Takes a Village to Raise a Child - and this is very true within this community. We have had our church, our neighbors, teachers, coaches, administrators, citizens get involved with our children and support the schools to assure all students have a very positive experience. We give a rating of Excellent based on our experience. We want to continue to support the school division.
I like how small Nelson County is because it really feels like everyone cares about each other and when something bad happens, the entire community comes together like a big family!
My experience with Nelson County High School has had it's ups and downs. One of the many great things about Nelson is, there of plenty helpful teachers. They are all willing to help you, and want to see you succeed. One of the down falls of Nelson would be the guidance counselors, they just sit there and do nothing. They could careless about what classes you need to take and what classes you actually need to be in. For example I should have been in all college classes but they refused to test me for them. So I, as a High School student did it over the summer with the help of my parents. My parents and I were the ones who got me in those classes. Also, the guidance counselors are supposed to help you with your starting journey to college, but they have not even helped many of my peers, let alone me. Other than the guidance department Nelson County High School is a pretty great place to be.
