Santa Rosa County School District Reviews

School spirit is one of the things I will always remember. Even if our football team is loosing (like it normally does), our student section doesn't just give up and leave. We always stay and support our boys. However, the academics of Santa Rosa County are quiet lacking. If you are lucky, you might get the good teachers, but for most of the students who take lower-level classes don't have access to good teachers. Even some of the upper-level teachers don't adequately teach the subject. Santa Rosa County doesn't offer enough AP courses to make their students competitive at upper echelon schools. All in all, I will forever cherish the memories I have made whilst in the Santa Rosa County School System, but I would urge young students to attend private schools in another county so that they can take more AP courses and be more prepared for college.

It is a very welcoming area with very helpful teachers! Teachers are always looking out for you along with helping you create a path to a very successful and bright future. Bullying is also not huge concern here as it is a very mature setting with staff that understands teenagers and their tendancies. The only issue is that our cafeteria food is awful considering eating "clean" should be the real goal.
Santa Rosa Schools are ranked one of the highest in Florida for good reason. We have some of the best teachers around. They go above and beyond to make certain each student is provided the highest education possible. Their dedication is reflected in the test scores.

Santa Rosa County Schools are much too sports oriented. More focus needs to be given to the arts. The arts need more funding and more appreciation from students, teachers, administration and the community.
