Putnam County High School Reviews
The only aspect that I really liked was the YES program. It prepared students for life after highschool in some fields including healthcare, and informational technology. What I didn’t like about this school was the food was terrible. Please pack your own lunch unless you would like dry, unseasoned, cold, and sometimes unsanitary food. Sometimes they would run out of food before every student got fed and resulted in giving out peanut butter sandwiches- no jelly. Also, some of the teachers and staff don’t encourage the kids to learn and promote them behaving in a bad way so that they can get them into trouble and have something to talk about.
What I loved about Putnam County High school was the stem classes and my teachers. I feel as though the teachers really cared about you and pushed me to be the best in all that I did. The healthcare class is great for students who want to be potential nurses or doctors. Mrs. Harvey does an awesome job getting us ready for the real world with mock disasters, clinical trails, hands on stimulation and actually attending nursing homes and hospitals to get a feel of what’s its like in the real world.
Putnam County is in a country town which offered a dual-enrollment to students. It also allowed student to receive Associate degrees from Georgia military college and degrees from Central Georgia Technical College before even graduating high school. Overall, the school and the school system cared very much about the students and our grades.
