Phenix City Schools Reviews

Every school has its advantages and its disadvantages. The Phenix city school district is really good. Teachers do not make the school great. The students are who make the school great. Students are a representation of the teachers. It is important to make every student feel special in their own way. The one thing that I do not like about Phenix City schools is the employee. There are quite a few who make students feel less than what they actually are. I have been told that I wouldn't be able to get into the college of my dreams and that I should be looking at other colleges who are not on my wish list at all. The moral of this is that teachers should be there to uplift students not bring them down. They should never tell a student that they can't do it. They should instead help the students and get them to the highest place that they deserve to be.

The school has a wide variety of learning opportunities. Many of the teachers are willing to teach just as they are willing to learn from the student. Though the school is large the halls do get crowed quickly. Many of the classes help in the work field that you want to be in later in life. Military options are also part of the school so if you decide to go into the military this is a great option to take. The staff inside and the school is usually clean. Many of the alumni from this district go into higher ranking colleges and parent involvement is encouraged. Learning in this district is not hard and electronics are mostly used which makes it easier for children to carry their things.
I have been in Phenix City Schools since kindergarten and haven't change schools yet. It's one of the best school districts I've ever been to. Now that I'm senior I also work for the Phenix City Board of Education as a co-op student and attend Central High School. I work at an elementary school in the district. I'm the second vice president of the Interact club. Where we volunteer at other schools in Phenix City and also at Feeding the Valley Food Bank. We pack food for the people in need. The food valley gives us goals to meet that we always pass. I like the organization because it gives us great community service skills that we can use in our own communities. This is the reason I love the Phenix City Board of Education.
