The teachers and administration work hard to make sure all students do well in the school. In my particular school there is good diversity. I do wish the food was better in the cafeteria, but this was a governmental derision. I do feel like I have been getting a good education and have many resources to further my career path. The teacher are especially helpful at helping find resources and information about college.

Going to high school in the county was great, with lots of good classes to choose from and lots of support in preparing for college. The teachers were all knowledgeable, but I was personally drawn toward the ones who taught in a more kinesthetic way because I'm a more hand-on learner. The biggest thing I would want to change is actually happening, right after I graduate, and that it a renovation to the old, falling apart building; yay!
Through my academic experience through Roanoke County, I would say that these school are good schools, however they are limited to what they are able to teach and how efficient they are. I believe this is caused by the lack of money. Regardless to the amount of money these schools have, I would say that they make do and that they do a good job of teaching students the material. In addition, I would like to see these schools better prepare student for the future like college and further.
