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.

My experience with Baltimore County Schools was great. I loved my teachers and always felt that they wanted to see me do well. I feel as if all my teachers to their best ability prepared me for college and the future. BCPS also has great diversity which i also believe is another great thing for students to experience so that they are prepared for the real world. Another great thing about BCPS is our music and arts which were always something my friends and I looked forward to going to when they had shows or exhibits . One thing I would like to see changed about BCPS is their facilities, I have personally been in rooms with no air conditioning or broken heaters. In addition to the AC and Heating the bathrooms often didn't have soap and many of the toilets would often be out of use. In all I had a great experience in the Baltimore County school system and would do it all over again if I had the chance.
Baltimore County Public Schools does an amazing job with creating substantial relationships between students, parents, teachers and faculty! I also very much appreciated the college preparation that they offered in high school.
