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!
It would be nice if the library could be open more often and if students were allowed to use it more than thirty minutes after school. A lot of the schools are somewhat disproportionate to their student population, which can be annoying, but it is not to the extent where it holds back anyone's academics. The lunch food is okay most of the time. The sports are usually very competitive and so are the academics. All of the elevators are old through for the multi-level buildings. The staff and teachers are usually very helpful and care about what they teach.
