    Schley County is going downhill. Its all about teaching to the test and in the end kids are missing out on being kids.

    Schley County Schools have met AYP (Annual Yearly Progress) for 4 years. We are one of a few schools in Georgia to do so.

    Our kids are actually 'out of county' kids which is why we really appreciate the quality of education our kids are receiving. The teachers and staff are very friendly and helpful. These people are very concerned for our childrens' educational welfare. Also they do make learning fun.

    My husband and I have been very pleased with the school system. Our son had a great year last year! His teacher helped him to 'fit' in with the other children and was attentive to his academic needs. The principal and facality all make you feel welcome when you visit the school.

    We just moved into the area and the system about 5 months ago and we could not be happier with our son's transition performance and overall well- being in this system! His teachers have time for him and with the small class populations he is allowed to work in a setting where he does not feel pressured.
