Wood County Schools Reviews
As a student who has attended Wood County Schools since kindergarten, I have seen the inner workings of the system, and while many areas are student friendly, rigorous, and full of opportunities, some aspects leave much to be desired. The quality of classes is full of college-minded staff and students alike, yet several—especially in the younger grades—are more focused on fun-filled activities than really teaching kids. Extracurriculars are abundant and inclusive in the county and are highly praised throughout. Resources provided by both teachers and administrators are extensive and readily available to all students. Despite all this, issues with administration have arisen in high schools especially. Administrators have begun lacking adequate communication skills with staff and students and typically do not support their teachers. Overall, however, Wood County Schools ready its students for a successful life and teachers invest themselves thoroughly in their students’ futures.
Wood Co. Schools are fantastic for preparing students for all of life’s endeavors. These schools are full of the best teachers, administrators, coaches, and other employees. I am a proud alum of Wood Co. and am thankful for all of the opportunities I had while a student. I look forward to giving back. I would be honored to receive a scholarship in hopes to one day give back to education systems. Thank you for your consideration!
I have attended Wood County Schools for 12 years now and feel that they are overall highly satisfying. In my experience with Wood County Schools, I appreciate that the faculty seems to actually enjoy and thrive in their positions. I feel it is important to learn in a positive environment and believe that the staff goes above and beyond to make sure that we feel a sense of belonging and we have equal opportunity. One thing that I would like to see change throughout our school system though is better facilities. I would especially like to see that at my own high school because although they do not hinder our education and experience, sometimes they do make it challenging or more stressful than need be.
