Volusia County Schools Reviews
Teachers are very modern and hard working. If you are behaving, you will NEVER have to deal with a mean teachers. The academics are pretty well thought. In fact, sometimes we get ahead of even other high school students. But the teacher still makes it understandable. There are many clubs and electives for people who want to do something outside of the academics. Culinary arts, dance, chorus, band, even raising farm animals. They cover almost everything. Schools are very secure with police officers who are approachable and make sure your safe. But at the same time its no prison. The only problem I see are the students who are a little too "rebellious" but that's not really the fault of the schools. 4/5!
Most of the teachers I have encountered in Volusia County since kindergarten, have been kind and thoughtful as well as good educators. The school and district does not always provide the most but they always find a way. Teachers connect with the students to better them and help them learn. Some facilities need to have more care to better the school. I think it is important that school do not only focus on sports, but music and art as well. Volusia County has done an excellent job at preparing their students for college. My high school, University High School, has many different clubs and activities for every student to be interested in. Many high schools in Volusia County have academies. These academies help students interested in certain fields such as engineering or bio med. They are exposed to the subject in an interactive way.
I think that the schools should be redone. I feel that the teachers are very unhelpful. I've heard that the schoolshas struggled with turnover, lack of leadership, weakness of character and disengagement with their students in the past. During this current 2018-2019 school year, the teachers and administrators that took over for the previous administration have shown they are committed to my student and others. I can tell that it has been a difficult transition but I've noticed improvement in the school's attitude and effectiveness. We're excited to watch our kiddo GROW from kinder through 5th and beyond.
