Putnam county schools are amazing schools. Putnam county has even been pointed to the best county in West Virginia. All the schools I have been in in Putnam county has been a good experience. The staff is always picked very well, and always take the time to really get to know their students. The facilities are very fair and take things very serious. The athletic programs here are some of the best as well. All the schools throughout Putnam county has and gets many state titles and awards for players themselves. I would recommend to everyone to enter their child into the school system here in Putnam county.

Overall, Putnam County Schools has prepared students for different types of learning and education after high school. While this school has provided me with a solid learning foundation, it lacks in areas such as diversity. While the majority of teachers are kind and welcoming to all, the lack of diversity does not allow kids to meet and engage with different racial, religious, and cultural people.
Putnam County Schools offer an amazing experience of community bonding. Putnam has went through several tragic losses of incredible people, and with continuous volunteering and fundraising, each school helped raised thousands of dollars for each loss. Education is a continuous growth in these schools. Although we may not have all the New growing resources; Putnam County makes due. The school district doesn’t quit on their students and continues to help students advance.
