I think Sumner County Schools provide a great academic/educational system and safe place for students. Schools in Sumner County also reassures parents and students that they can rely on them for the future of the students' education. I have seen many educational programs for many students, most schools with financial aid and available schooling and career opportunities for all students. Sumner County Schools display a great interest of students and the availability of staff members in schools county-wide is excellent. The educational system that SCS uses properly prepares students academically for college and/or after-school life by offering many programs and benefits. I am pleased to say that I am a proud student of Sumner County!

I’ve had a good experience with Sumner County schools. This district offers many AP courses and educational advancements in high school. For example, at Gallatin high school they have a HOSA club to help prepare students for their future career in the medical field. This school also had courses where a student can get their EKG certificate by their senior year. This county focuses on there’s main sports: football, basketball, and partially soccer. All of the other sports are not important. The county has denied GHS a new track for several years, and when they were about to build a new one they ended up giving it to a different school. Our track does not meet the national requirements to host a meet.
Overall, our experience with Sumner County Schools has been very good! We moved from another county in order to have our kids involved with this school system. It is as close to a private school as you are going to get within the public school system. Academically, our kids have excelled. I feel like they are well prepared for college. They have had multiple opportunities to be involved in a variety of things including sports, Beta, FCA, DECA, and more. My kids have been able to experience multiple things molding them into well rounded students ready for the adult world.
