Oconee County Schools Reviews
As a resident of Oconee Co. for 30+ yrs., and a retired Public School Administrator of Georgia, I will Boldly state that the Oconee Co. System is as good or better than any Public School system you will find to raise and educate your children. Do your research.. this system has been in the Top 5-10% for the past 18+ years. Discipline issues are such that neither of the 2 High Schools & 2 Middle Schools require a School Resource/Police Officer. That in itself speaks volumes..! Academics are excellent! Athletics A+. The community is a great place to live.
I do not have enough positive things to say about this school system. The students are provided with the highest quality education possible, and the faculty and staff are more than dedicated to ensuring nothing less. The working environment is that of a family, which makes being a part of this system that much more meaningful. It is no surprise why this system is becoming as wildly popular and sought after as it is!
I am a resident of Oconee and also an educator. I know that the school system get a lot of praise about how good the schools are and how great the teachers are. But let's be all the way real. The system does not hire many minorities (African-Americans) and the number of African-American students that attend there are growing each year. These students do not have anyone in their corner from elementary to high school that they can look up to. I have filled out parent surveys and voiced my opinion for several years and nothing has been done about it. The teachers here are not faced with many academic or behavioral struggles like some of the surrounding counties or if they are, it is not known to the public. I would just like to see more minority teachers in each building so that the students can have someone to relate to. Seek out minority teachers (especially African-Americans) OCONEE!!! They are out there and would love to work in your county.
