Scott County School District Reviews

Going to school in Scott County was a blessing, and I honestly learned so much. My teachers over the years helped me be successful, and no matter how much I wanted to give up, they always pushed me to try and do my best. The thing I like most about the school district is the friendly environment, and the vocational center. I participated in the health sciences program, and I loved it. My teacher was not lenient on me, and she inspired me to go into the health field even though I had changed my mind six months into my senior year.
She told me that i had a good head on my shoulders, and I could be a doctor if I wanted to be. I just had to focus and prepare myself, physically and mentally. Given these points, one can conclude that the Scott County School District helps children learn and prepares them for success. We did class activities and even went on trips to clarify the learning material. For these reasons, I think the Scott County School District is the best! :)

With then new addition of Great Crossing High, there is hope for a better system for students as well as ECS being very beneficial for students. Scott county high has a good reputation for sports but is lacking in other areas where as attending different middle schools almost creates a separatist mindset between the kids and parents involved. district pride inst often seen.
My experience in the Scott country school district was good. I was not apart of it my entire school like I spent 6 years in the school district and it was not so bad. The teachers were not to bad than what i has experienced in my years before. The food was really poor they only baked food. Even though it was the best for our bodies as student we did not like it. There was always something going on from band to football to cheerleading. Everyone got along in game days because we were all excited this year our football team was 14-1 an amazing season. It was a great experience going there.
