What I liked the most about Forsyth County Schools was the environment. School has always been a positive experience for me and I think part of the reason I enjoyed it so much has been because of how welcoming, accepting, and dedicated all my instructors have been. They always offered extra help if needed and taught with passion and a positive attitude. I believe what I would like to see changed if anything would be promoting more clubs and after school activities that get students equipped for college. Overall I really enjoyed attending Forsyth County schools and would recommend to everyone!

I have been in the school system since I started school And I have loved every one of the schools that i have went to. I wish Testing wasn’t so hard on the kids and that even though we’re in school we need to be creative and teachers need to let us be creative, every student learns differently. We need to be able to use the strengths in classes when we need to let students incorporate there arts and sports and what they think will help them succeed. Teachers need to be there to guide the students and help them but some teachers don’t help they just hurt and that can effect a student a lot. Being at an arts based school i have A lot of opportunities that many kids don’t have And I’m glad that i do, we need to keep arts incorporated in the schools it can change lives
My experience in Forsyth County Schools has been filled inspirations, aspirations, and motivations. What I like about the county's schools is that it's unbelievable that there's staffs in every institutions that care about their students, which I find it hard to believe. I've seen so many changes in every school that I've been during my 12 years of schools. These changes can be considered as positive changes, which brings the attentions of staffs and students. When I'm referring as "positive changes" is where schools are fortifying the securities for students and staffs. It's really important to know that there's love ones have futures that are waiting for them, including with their families.
