Surry County Schools is outstanding when it comes to student-teacher relationships; that is, teachers are almost always available to help students who are willing to communicate. However, the county administration is very hands off, and should be more involved with the body of students. Those who attend Surry County Schools have a right to know those who operate their school system!

I moved a lot during my elementary and middle school years, so i was able to get the general taste of the school system. Discipline is very much enforced if necessary but there isn't a lot of problems. The students are generally nice and respectful and the teachers are very helpful.
I have never had a problem with the Surry County School system. Everyone involved has always been friendly. If there are any problems they have everything resolved quickly and efficiently.
