I go to Perry Hall High School, but I've gone to Baltimore County Public Schools my whole life, and from at least what I've seen, they're doing a great job! I have classmates of all religions and ethnicity, there's a multitude of clubs already and if you feel there's one that should be added you're free to make one! There also several different types of classes for each subject so everyone has a place where they need to be instead of making large groups of students who may not be in the same capabilities-it's just a great school district for students. The only thing is that bathrooms could be a little nicer and we could be given more money to help some more departments in our schools that aren't top priority like art programs!

I believe Baltimore County Schools works very hard to give their students the best education, teachers, and resources possible to succeed. My experience attending BCPS from elementary through high school has been mostly positive. I have established great relationships with students, staff, and teachers. I have always felt that my teachers had my best interest in mind and wanted to see me succeed. One thing that I would change would be the overcrowding problem in schools and giving students options of how they want to learn. All students learn differently and the same method doesn't work for everyone.
I've been in Baltimore County Public Schools my entire primary school career. I've learned enough to graduate high school and continue my secondary education. However, Baltimore County needs to focus on students actually understanding what they are learning. They also could provide more resources for schools so they can prosper and help their students succeed. I've loved most of my teachers and faculty through Baltimore County and have had great experiences throughout my educational career. I was able to travel multiple times with two organizations I was involved with and have learned so much.
