I have grown up in okaloosa county my whole life. I've gone through school with all my elementary school friends and we all are close. I feel a sense of family, and okaloosa county has many fun activities and being in Florida has brought beautiful weather and beautiful beaches. Whenever you come to Florida make sure to stop by the beaches and I recommend trying seafood because it's delicious!
Review Okaloosa County School District
Schooling is somewhat poor in Okaloosa county area. Schools are under-resourced and understaffed, and many children and parents are not content with the level of education they are receiving. A family friend of mine cannot get the needed care for her autistic son and has been handed around from school to school. Not only this, but the actual buildings are very run down, dating back to the 60's and 70's. Some buildings are even though to contain asbestos. Personally, I would recommend sending your children to a school out of this county or home schooling them.
I believe that okaloosa county school district is good educational system for students k-12. They have amazing teachers that have the patience, knowledge, and passion to work with and teach the students. My senior year I would stress about the certain test like ACT or the Pert and there would be more than a handful of teachers that would take time out of there schedule to give you the tips and tools you need to be able to relax and do your very best on the test.
