Randolph County School System Reviews

The community here is strong. We have a strong acceptance for mentally disabled and other "underplayed" activities. We don't have much crime and our student body is strong in work ethic. The teachers can be unfriendly but are overall exceptional at their job. The administration is involved and is open in terms of what they want accomplished. We severely lack ethnic diversity but we have a strong following in the LGBT community. Our sports system isn't amazing, but it does well enough to hold the interest of the student body. I absolutely love my school's Beta Club. The organization of the Beta Club and the volunteer work we do is phenomenal. We have distinguished ourselves by competing at a state level, winning academic awards almost every year. Coming here can be a bit intimidating at first since some of the student body can be harsh, but the school overall is extremely welcoming. This system sets you up for success.

I love how Southwestern Randolph High School offers AP classes to the kids that are serious with their learning. They can handle diversity that's thrown at them well. The teachers are always a part of the child learning and loves to give help where helps needed. I feel like many kids that don't Learn on the same level as most are thought the things to prepare them for collage levels. We have many different clubs offered to the kids that attended including myself. I've never once not felt like I was safe attending or traveling to and from school. Randolph county schools as a whole is an awesome place to learn!
Randolph County Schools prides itself on "putting students first". Unfortunately, the budget and athletics are usually put before the students' best academic interests. For example, they are cutting curricular Fine Arts to the bare minimum, but there were no cuts to after school athletics or club sports. The vast majority of the teachers are top-quality, exceptional educators, but there are a few poor quality teachers running about. As for school administration, there are two extremes: excellent or atrocious. County/district administration is still slowly rebuilding from a Superintendent change in 2014. Overall, RCS has great schools, and (mostly) excellent teachers, but priorities in funding aren't always correct.
