South Washington County School District Reviews

I really liked being a part of the South Washington County School District. As I went through all of my years as a student, each of my teachers was very thoughtful and told me I had a great future ahead of me. I got to know most of of teachers and although some of them were a little tough, that is their job and they still guide you in a positive direction. The sports through this school district are incredible! I was a part of a sports team and I had so much fun. One thing that I think needs to be improved is the college readiness. I feel that more needs to be taught about what college is like and how to prepare for it. When I attended my first year at college, classes were a lot more difficult which is what I expected, but I wasn't sure how to go about it. My overall experience was excellent.

What I liked about South Washington County Schools is the involvement in activities and clubs. How they create all these amazing clubs giving the opportunity for everyone and anyone to join. What I would like changed about South Washington County Schools is the subjects they teach. When I was in middle school, they had cooking and sewing; which I believe is important for your future. When my little brother went into middle school, they changed it to "College and Career Readiness." Making these 12 year olds decide on their future after high school. They will learn that in high school but they will never learn cooking or sewing.
I have really enjoyed my time in the South Washington County School District. There have been many things that I have enjoyed over the past 12 years, the overall sense of community that is in our district is one that I cannot compare to any other district. Also the teachers in the district are always here to help you of you need help with anything, wether it be school related or personal related.
