Washington County Public Schools Reviews
The Washington County public schools push their students to take AP classes even if they're not ready to take those courses just to make the school look better on paper. The teachers are very political and the students views are often swayed by those teachers. The school district is not diverse in any way at all. The students lack an insight to any other culture than a white washed society. The teachers often do not care about the students and refuse to admit that they're teaching style is subpar and rather choose to blame the students for their lack of knowledge on ignorance. During the 2018 school year multiple students attempted suicide during the school day. These schools do not prepare their students for the future at all in exception to Tech High. Focus too much on their athletics and create a harmful culture for all those who do not participate in those sports.
This school district is pretty good. Very helpful in our education, and very persistent in trying to end our county’s very high teen pregnancy rate. The reason why I gave it 4 stars is that they are horrible about school cancellations during winter. 3 inches of snocat, School is on. High of 15 degrees, time for school! That’s my only complaint.
My experience with Washington County Public Schools has been very positive. My teachers throughout elementary, middle and high school were very knowledgeable of the content they were teaching and created a positive atmosphere for students. There is a vast variety of elective courses at my high school. I particularly like the articulation agreement that our county has with our community college.
