Seminole County Public Schools Reviews

Overall, attending Seminole County Public Schools has been an above average experience for me. When I was in elementary school, I loved attending Spring Lake because (most) of the teachers were fantastic and they had many activities for my young mind to learn and explore, such as SECME, writing club, school plays, Odyssey of the Mind and TV Production. As I got older, I enjoyed attending Millennium Middle School, which has a wonderful drama program that helps young actors harness their potential while still enjoying being a kid. My high school experience in the IB Program at Seminole High School has been academically challenging, yet the multitude of cultures has allowed me to gain a greater appreciation for the world around me. Our performing arts programs are also wonderful, and our theatrical department puts on many productions that allow students to not only participate in them but truly express themselves.
Review Seminole County Public Schools
Longwood Elementary was by far the best school experience I've experienced through my 12 years of school. Middle school was rough with teachers, but not nearly as awful as high school has been. Sanford Middle school offered me a lot, and I left there feeling like I accomplished a lot. Seminole High however has been an absolute nightmare. Teachers quitting in the middle of the school year, teachers always absent, teachers not teaching, you name it- I've dealt with it. Overall, it has affected my learning, my GPA, and I'm just excited to finally be graduating and starting college.
I am very happy with my education overall, and I found that Seminole County Schools offered a lot of opportunity, but was lacking in many ways. The county did not respond to many incidents the way that I thought they should have. The administration at my school was almost useless. One of the biggest problems was the poor communication between the county and those they needed to communicate with. However, Seminole county schools provides fantastic educations, some pretty good sports teams, and plenty of opportunities for those who can get past the shortcomings of those in charge.
