Personally, I dislike my school. Elliott County schools focus too much on sports and very little on academics and students. Being a student at Elliott County Schools has taught me that in life sometimes people will try and knock you down but you have to fight through that, and prove to people that you are strong. I would love to have this scholarship so I can prove to people at Elliott County schools, that I am not the outcome of my parents and that I am bound to great things.

Elliott County High is an excellent school for getting to know others. In this small town everyone knows everyone and you’re almoat guaranteed to have a friend. Students always seem to have great bonds with teachers both on an educational and a semi-personal level—since most of our teachers taught our parents and all. Apart from the social aspect, the education is genuine. If students do not feel they are learning to the best of our abilities, we will tell our teachers and it is often fixed. The structural integrity of the school is by far the worst part. The original stone buildings were built while reconvering from the Great Depression and were eventually added onto to create our school now. So, it is a given that the stability of the school is questionable. While not everything is perfect and some things could use work, overall it’s a great place to attend and would be an acceptional school to enroll your children in.
Elliott County is a tight knit community due to its small stature. So its no suprise this carries on into its school system. I know almost if not everyone of the other sudents in my senior class. That is one of the few things I enjoy about my school. However, we are given poor funding , old textbooks and equiptment that bearly runs and are expected to excell. Their are many things I would like to see change such as a new flow of ideas going through the school system. People don't relize that things that worked twenty years ago don't work now. I would also like to see more imphesis on education rather than on basketball.
