Sumter School District Reviews
This school district is ridiculous. As a student, test scores were constantly pushed and it was rarely about learning. It made me hate my experience and even leave the district. It is consistent for the teachers and staff to talk down to their students and be absolutely rude and inconsiderate of their time. Once I got into college classes, it was astounding how many misconceptions I had to fix and the number of concepts I had to relearn completely. This district also pushed the AVID learning style on all students, which personally hindered my learning but I had to continue since it was part of the grade.
I am a teacher in Sumter County. I am also a former student of this school district. It is a small tight knit county. I have 2 children who attend schools in our district also. I have worked in another county and worked with teachers through trainings in other counties and we are lucky for the support we get. Even though we are a small district, it's a great one to be a part of!
Lived here all my life and went to school. Born and raised! Now going to Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida. Loves my teachers and counselors!
