Tuscaloosa County Schools Reviews
Tuscaloosa county schools are filled to the brim with good people who care about their children and their community. However, over the past 10 years more people have began to care less and less about their child's education, and a significant drop off of parent involvement is prevalent. Furthermore, the funding to these county schools is extremely poor, leaving many teachers with below average equipment and materials. Nevertheless, the school system still contains many amazing teachers and educators who truly care for their students and strive daily to make it a great learning environment.
The Tuscaloosa County School system is a public school system in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The experience in the schools is very confusing. I was enrolled at Tuscaloosa County High School before attending college and the communication between high school and college was not an easy thing due to the limitations made by the school board. Also, I was apart of the football team at the high school and the school went through 3 head coaches in 4 years due to the school system not wanting to pay the coaches enough to stay, making the player experience unenjoyable.
I liked that most of the students were friendly, so were the teachers. The teachers are very attentive an listens to a students needs. The schools in the county need more funding in general. The lunch nenu also needs to change. I think people are tired of eating pizza all the time. The athletic department needs more money. They always have to fundn raise, unlike the city schools. If the city schools can have money, why can't the county school be equally as great.
