Scott County Public Schools Reviews
Scott County has provided me with unique experiences, great opportunities, and a priceless education. However, as with any other public school, Scott County has its downfalls. During my 5 years attending Scott County Schools, I've found the district overall has poor management and sanitation- litter within the schools, busted waterlines in the building, pest issues, power outages, nearly 100 physical altercations per year at the high school alone- and a critical drug problem in dire need of aid. The evident drug issue in the district persisted through middle school and arguably worsened into high school. Given the benefit of the doubt, the district's redeeming quality is that it does provide all students with a good education and great career opportunities, like the option to attend Elkhorn Crossing School, given that the student works to help his/herself. Thus, Scott County Public Schools earn an average review.
Scott County Public Schools strives to make a quality education for their many students across the county. Our schools are equipped with teachers that have a passion for what they do and bring experience as well as excitement to the classroom. The students in our county are exposed to wide varieties of extra curricular activities even at the elementary and middle school levels. The administration throughout the district takes pride in how each school is running and how to make improvements for their schools moving forward. There are some things that may need to be adjusted though. Some students feel that with recent budget cuts in our state that it is impacting our quality of education. If our budget cuts continue state wide, our district will not be able to support the education of the next generation in this community.
I love the teachers. They are committed to helping students learn, but they also care about your emotional well being. They pushed me to work hard in both academic and my music. There are many AP classes that can be taken as well as taking college classes at a local university. The downfalls is that there is not a ton of diversity, and the food is horrible. The school district does not have very good college readiness scores, but I feel that is because the population is a ton of low income. I come from a low income family as well, but my parents push me to succeed. Sadly many from low income homes the parents are both working so much that the kids are taking care of themselves or they come from single parent homes with the same issues. Many are taking care of younger siblings or working and going to school. I feel the teachers are great at teaching, but life circumstances make it hard for the students to be college ready.
