My experience through the Raleigh Co school system has been incredible. They have been proactive on accommodating my disability, bilateral hearing impairment. The school system recognized early in my childhood, (pre-K) that I needed speech therapy and quieter environments in order to academically excel. The educators initiated my IEP and continue to follow me through my senior year with my 504. The staff’s dedication has enabled me to achieve my academic goals, thus far. They have always worked with me and pushed me to do my best academically. I was a “gifted” student through out middle school and now proud to say that I’m a member of the National Honor Society. My overall GPA is >4.0. The BOE has provided accessibility to dual credit classes, honors classes and also college classes. As I continue through high school and college, I will always be appreciative and thankful to have been a part of the Raleigh Co school system.

I gave Raleigh county schools this rating due to a lack of a few different things, such as there are many issues with bullying and they still haven’t established a good program. Along with the fact of behavioral problems that are very rarely solved. There are many racial issues that cause division among students that are not resolved. Many other things go on that teachers do not even seem to recognize. Academics wise in my opinion are poor, many teachers now are racing to the next thing just to achieve there guidelines. Money distribution between clubs and sports is also a problem.
The experience I had at my high school, Woodrow Wilson, in Raleigh county West Virginia, was overall satisfactory. I'd like to see the limitations on free time change. I graduated three and a half years ago, since then the school has gotten rid of the eagle academy which I find to be a huge step in the right direction. The suggestions I'd like to see happen is they could offer more after school activities that do not include sports. They could replace a lot of the punishments with opportunities for improvement such as, classes to help with the real world. For example, if a student receives in school suspension for something or detention for a reason, have the student participate in a learning opportunity for why the action is not accepted in not just schools but the real world. If this would have been in affect when I was in high school I would have benefited from it.
