Putnam County School District Reviews
Putnam County School system is geared toward the average or below average student. There is really no tools for gifted elementary and middle school students to expand their horizons. As a result, and I speak from experience, your child is bored with school and does not have any interest in school. They make the grade but they are not exposed to anything other than the everyday life of the below average or average students.
The facilities and the staff in all of the schools. Very friendly. Presscott middle was new when I went there and as soon as I entered I was greated with friendly faces and an amazing environment. Cookeville high school was also like that. My teachers where willing to stay afterschool and help me at any time of need. Band was also a focal point of my schooling career and Putnam county did an amazing job with this program. I cant say enough about how proud I was to be apart of this amazing environment .
I did not enjoy it that much. However I had a dance teacher who made high school very enjoyable. The best part about the district is the teachers. The counselors were not helpful when it came to college readiness and did not even put all my dual enrollment credits on my transcript. This made it hard to go back and find proof of those credits myself, which came at an extra cost. The cafeteria food is pretty good.
