The think the education system is strict and efficient. While I attended here I was heavily involved in extra curriculars. Mainly, I focused on getting a good GPA and the school system was helpful in that aspect. Teachers were behind student success and always made sure you went home understanding the topic for that day. Their were many resources such as after school tutoring, which helped me when I am behind or I didn’t understand something. There were many clubs and sport to get involve in and make you feel part of a family. I participated in Chorus, cross country, TSA, honor society, FFA, auxiliary, band. Overall this is the school to be and parents can be involved also.

My experience in ware county school was totally amazing! I learned a lot from my schools as I grew up. Techers, principles, staff, advisers, etc. were always sure to help us in whatever we needed. they were always making sure our future would make difference by pushing us as hard as we can, and to never give up on ourselves.
I had a very positive experience in Ware County. The teachers and staff were always supportive and knowledgeable of their content area. There are many extracurricular activities available for all types of interests and it is easy to get involved in the school culture and volunteer in the community. My counselor was very helpful and offered me lots of resources to further my education.
