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 does a very good job of preparing students for college, or at least giving them the option of obtaining AP scores so that they can gloss over some general education courses in college. All of my teachers were very kind, especially my Japanese teachers, and helped to mold my high school experience into something that I look back on with a smile. The only problems I had with this school did not lie in the faculty, but with the general student population. There were too many fights and definitely a lack of common sense/depth of character of about 70% of the students. Otherwise, I had a fairly decent high school experience!
The school is filled with caring and educated teachers and staff who actively help students achieve their goal and reach graduation. The atmosphere is warm and encourages learning. The only complaint would really be the lack of certain resources, understandable however given that the school is filled to capacity and functioning with the available budget. I have learned so much from my teachers and have been influenced by the different learning styles that’s guide their teaching. I love the small town aspect the school provides and the closeness students develop with staff. Proud to be a Scott County Cardinal!
