Although it is a very small school, I've had a great experience! The faculty and staff all want me to succeed, the class sizes are small, allowing the teachers to work with students more, and even the other students are great. It is a great atmosphere all around!

In the Stanly County Schools there is a lot of competition and prejudice among the schools. There is disrespect between teachers and students and it reflects poorly as the kids and teachers go on. Teachers insult and taunt students when they ask simple questions. Students disrespect and curse teachers whop make simple requests. But that is just the life of a student in this district. There were fights, and unfair punishments, "teacher's pets", teachers who slept with students, lunches were unhealthy,the education was useless and mediocre. This school district prided itself on making one school better than the others. There were those who wanted to hurt themselves and those who wanted to hurt others. I liked three things maximum during my attendance; the two classes that were weight lifting and carpentry, the sports I was involved and the fact that some teachers were so disconcerted with the lives of students you could miss a class,leave early, or sneak out without anyone caring.
I have attended Stanly County Schools since I was four years old. Overall I have had a good experience; however, both my pre-school and elementary school were both shut down for unknown reasons. Which is probably the only strange occurrence I dealt with. On the other hand, the schools I have attended have been life-changing. For example, I attend Stanly Early College High School and the school has given me multiple opportunities to excel in life. They provided me with college classes, college books, and volunteer opportunities at no cost. To conclude, while most Stanly County Schools are great the early college is by far a recommendation I will give to everyone.
