Scott County High School Reviews

Transferring to Scott County was very hard, leaving a small school setting to coming into one of the biggest public schools in the state. At first it was hard and scary, so many people and so many clicks. After a few fights, I knew what a big school was like. I never felt threatened or unsafe, just always on my toes. The teachers were awesome and most of them really cared for the students they had and made sure everyone was successful. The principals were student oriented and helped when help was needed. The school was very into clubs and getting everyone involved with the school. Sports are life at SCHS. Completing a pathway is looked very high upon, and gets rewarded well. Overall the experience was a good high school experience!

Scott County High School offers many opportunities to grow as a student, person, and athlete through its extensive sports programs, clubs, and honors classes. Many extracurricular activities are offered to students who want to strive outside of the classroom as well as in. The counselors make time in their days to consult with students to answer any questions they might have, and they are helpful to the students who require emotional counseling. Our cafeteria and cleaning staff are patient, hard working, and kind to students, always doing their best work for the good of our school. It also has a connecting school, called Elkhorn Crossing School, which is an all-honors school that offers career-based classes in clusters called "villages." They offer Law and Justice, Media Arts, Biomedical Sciences, Health Sciences, and Engineering courses. The atmosphere is very college-like, and the classes are academically advanced, engaging, and challenging.
Scott County High School is an overall good school. I have made incredible relationships with the teachers. They truly care for their students and will make an effort to personally understand students. Not to mention, Scott County offers many AP classes and college readiness pathways to their students. Scott County High School allows their students to join Elkhorn Crossing School programs, such as Health Sciences, Law and Justice, Engineering, Biomedical Sciences, and Media Arts villages. Students are also allowed to join Southside and Eastside technical school programs. In addition, the school has one of the best and largest bands and choir of the state of Kentucky. Many students are able to join state competitions concerning choir and band. Also, the school spirit is outrageous considering the top tier sports teams. The football team has made it to state every year I have been to this this school. The single downfall is the amount of fights that have occurred.
