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.

Well I've been in SCPS for about 3 or so years and the innovation taking place in Seminole is amazing. You can tell that everyone really cares about our future! We're the best of the best and everything is amazing here! The school bus I ride is both environmentally friendly and safer then all the others on the road. Our teachers really care about our future, they're helpful and amazing and they're making sure we're prepared for college!
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!
