Why I Like Tri-County Schools
By Angela, March 2013
Tri-County Schools is not just for misbehaved children, it’s to give all kids a second chance.
Tri-County staff is there for kids and teens to talk to. They dedicate their time to help the kids that need it. Tri-County is also for kids that need extra help and can’t get it in public school. The classes are small and have a teacher’s aide so the students each get an equal amount of help.
The basketball team at Tri-County is an important part of the school because Tri-County does not have many sports teams like other schools. The team teaches kids how to work together and to have fun. I think having fun is the most important part of having a sports team. While other schools have sports teams and leave a ton of people out, Tri-County has one sports team and everyone works together. That’s why the basketball team is important to Tri-County.
The staff at Tri-County is supportive, fun and strict at times. They want you to have fun, but be safe while doing it. The staff here cares a lot about the students. They want you to be safe most of all. If a student is having a hard time, they will try their best to accommodate that student. You really can’t get that in a public school. The staff here is fun. They joke around with kids and treat them fairly. They can take a joke, but they don’t let it go too far. I believe the staff at Tri-County is what makes the school better than any public school.
The classes at Tri-County are rather small which is good because the teacher and teacher’s aide can come around to the students when they need help. The classes are not just for middle school and high school students, there are students ranging from age 6 to 18 at Tri-County. There are also at least 6 subjects in most classrooms and gym is the most fun, in my opinion. The classes are not easy but not hard as well, because you have a teacher that helps you out when needed and can explain how to do the subject you’re having trouble with.
I think Tri-County Schools should be recommended for kids that need that extra help or that need a second chance in order to be back in a public school. Tri-County Schools is a great school and the teachers and staff will help you get through any hard time or any work you’re having trouble with, and they won’t give up or let you fail. Tri-County Schools is not a punishment, it’s for a new beginning. That’s how I took Tri-County in my second year here. That’s why I like Tri-County Schools.
