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.

There’s no other place we’d rather be. Our daughter has a safe and caring place to learn. Teachers are supported and have many opportunities to learn and grow. We are thankful for the East district 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.
