Seminole County Public Schools Reviews

Growing up in and out of many different school systems, I've learned that there are many aspects and hands that go into building a strong school. I cannot say that I have ever been in a great school, an A+ maybe, but not necessarily a "great" school. Standardized testing, inattentiveness to teacher and student needs, major safety hazards and violations, rough peer enviroments; all of this and more could be found in any one of SC public schools, I know I have experienced all of it in my time with them. However, there were those teachers, the ones that just clicked. They gave me the structure and motivation to learn on my own, see in every perspective imaginable, reach for more than just a good grade or GPA. SCPC may not always support students or even their teachers, but they do provide the grit and struggle, the opportunity to do better, and TONS of school spirit in every school I have attended! I can't say I regret or would change any of it.

All public education experiences will naturally vary from student to student, especially when considering students like me who enrolled with a magnet high school rather than attending my zoned high school. For this reason, I cannot relate a useful example for potential experiences to new Seminole County students. However, I can say that for the most part Seminole County Public Schools is no more or no less than I, personally, expect from a public education system, particularly in a state like Florida. Truly, the outcome of your time in Seminole County Public Schools is dependent on a myriad factors, the least of which - but also the most commonly shared between students - is which schools you actually attend. That is where the difference lies: more with the school, less with the county. To that point, however, I do believe Seminole County at least seems to be better in multiple ways than its adjacent neighbors.
