My experience in Seminole County Public Schools was a great experience I'm remember going from Kinder garden to high school was one of the best days of my life. One of my favorite memories from kindergarten was nap time and play time I would always be the first person to go to sleep. High School was one of the best years of my life I remember hanging out with friends, getting my school work done and planning for college, graduation. If went to different county I wouldn't feel the same like I do for Seminole County Public Schools because it has gave potential to be a successful person to my friends and to my family!
Review Seminole County Public Schools
My K-12 schooling experience in Seminole County was outstanding. I attended Bear Lake Elementary K-5, Markham Woods Middle School 6-8, and Lake Mary High School 9-12 grade. I felt as if my teachers properly prepared me for each new level of education and life I have endured. I am still in contact with many of my teachers who I know consider mentors. The schools were very diverse and enforced extra curricular participation from all students. The only aspect of the schooling that I believe needs improvement is the food. Though "healthy", often times the food did not seem very fresh. I highly recommend attending any of the Seminole County public schools. I myself am now an Elementary Education major at Florida State University hoping to return to Seminole County in the next couple years after I graduate to give back to a schooling community that has given so much to me.
Went to 3 schools in SCPS all of which are the only schools I've been too. My elementary school was pretty bad. The teachers as I remember lacked social skills with younger children and I see them now as condescending. Middle school was alright although there were some problems with one of the deans who picked favorites and would write up some kids for wearing things like cat ears or tails but not others who went even more extreme wearing legwamers tails ears. Highschool was fantastic. I went to Crooms AOIT and The teachers there definitely care a lot more then most. You can tell right off the bat who is a good teacher and who isn't and you'll more then likely get the same teachers a few years in a row. Mr. Donnan imparticular is a fantastic teacher, he is the steel band director, 3D modeling teacher, and Game Design teacher. All of these positions are almost unique to Crooms and to certainly to him. He deserves more praise then he gets.
