Peach County Schools Reviews

Peach County Highschool isn’t just a school, but a home where students, staff, and teachers create bonds that last a life-time. It is an environment that promotes growth of all who go there and houses relationships that are hard to be broken. To put it simply, we are a family. Just as all families, we have our problems and arguments, but, just as all families, we work it out. Recently we instated the PBIS system, which is where we get rewarded for exemplary behavior instead of being constantly chastised for dissatisfying behavior. The students speak and they listen. That’s one of the most crucial parts of a school system. Those above us listen to us and not every school or school system can truly say that. We have our struggles, but they provide us with what they can. After all, we are two cities brought together, many cultures blended, and most of all, bonded.

I believe that the environment here is extremely athletically-inclined. While there are some extremely respectable teachers here, there are also teachers who seem rather apathetic of their students' educations. I have experience rude comments from a few teachers and students have proven to be rude as well. The football team will receive much support from here, so if you plan on doing anything else, do not expect to receive much acclamation or support. That being said, some students still strive for success. Our valedictorian this year, while being fully dull-enrolled at the local university, was able to earn acceptance into the prestigious Johns Hopkins University. Despite this achievement, however, there doesn't seem to be much enthusiasm or support. I myself have struggled with trying to gain the support I need in my endeavors. I feel as though I will be laughed at for my high goals, but nonetheless, as cliche as it may sound, where there's a will, there's a way.
Peach county schools have always been a challenge. The schools always strive for success in any & everything. As i go through school i realize that its going to get harder. However, i do feel that there are changes that need to be made, but it will also take time. Changes that should be made would be dress code, and the food. Those are two major things that i feel that people complain about. I know that’s its not all about that, but education is the most important. Us students that are seniors are working hard to get everything done to graduate, but it’s also important for underclassmen to do the same. Working hard from the time you get in school til it’s time to get out will lead you a long way.
