Baltimore City Public Schools Reviews

Overall being a student in a Baltimore Pubkic School has been both triumphant and disappointing. Favoritism can be seen through the uneven funding for all extracurricular activities, for example at Western High School the Basketball team gets all the money, But when it comes to the Fine Arts department the money seems to be missing. The textbooks are falling apart and are diminishing in number as the years go on. The bathroom stalls have missing doors and some hallways have insufficient lighting. Despite all of the technicalities of the building, I believe the educational aspect of Western High School is nurturing. The majority of the teachers do their best to provide for students and prepare them for the future both academically And socially. The diverse community in western allows students to get comfortable being around people who have different backgrounds. The lunches overall are great they are nutritious and tasty.

Baltimore City Public schools Are well invested in their students The have teachers and faculty members that care about the students well-being, physical mental and emotion situation. They strive to support their students in every aspect of life. The culture of school differ from school to school however it has a vast range of diversity. They make sure that by graduation they are ready for college, for the Work world, or other possibilities any student might be interested in. The school Academics prepare students with the basic knowledge of subjects needed to Navigate through life or expand further if interest is shown. I believe that Baltimore City Public schools Are wonderful in the youth of our community.
So far I have been in the Baltimore city education district for 18 years, and I feel my overall experience was good. I always had very excellent teachers who provided me with great academic knowledge. However, I would say that if one thing had to change it would be the financial stability of schools throughout Baltimore. For Instance, a lot of schools don't have air conditioners, so at the beginning of school it gets very hot, which causes delays or dismissals and during the middle of the school year(Winter) it causes the same thing to happen.
