It's amazing and very clean, the people are really nice! I like how the students accept one another and they come together so well. They are really supportive to one another and never let differences hinder the connection between students. I'm very glad I got a chance to attend Wilkes county schools.

My experience with Wilkes County schools was good! Very friendly teachers and other staff. Although I must say, I wish I would have learned more academically. I did have some of the teachers were not 100 percent worried about teaching the subjects, as they were to impress the students by making them laugh. I believe if we would have had more strict and educated teachers, I would have learned more.
I have been in the Wilkes Country Schools system my entire life and I have overall loved it! I would say that they could do a lot better job at hiring teachers. A teacher is more influential than they get credit for, and if the teacher is a bad one, the student will lose all drive. Teachers are definitely the number one thing Wilkes needs to work on. Other than that, I would never want to go anywhere besides a Wilkes County School!
