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.

Baltimore County Public Schools are very middle of the road, for better or for worse. At its best the schools are top of the line in the state (Franklin, Perry Hall), in its middle they would have great aspects but with noticeable flaws (Milford Mill, Catonsville), or at its worst the schools are among the worst in the nation (Woodlawn, Dundalk). In my experience, I was attending a school at its middle (Milford Mill from 2010-2014), and it had aspects that I wouldn't trade for anything and others I would do anything to forget. Great sports program and supporting curriculum, Diverse staff and students and rich school culture. However, poor administration, even poorer food and so-so teaching staff. Overall, an average experience that could have been better
Great school, amazing staff, and the school offers so many diverse AP classes available. The STEM, art, and music program is exception and caters to all the wants of students. There is also a wide range of sports teams such as Soccer, Cross-country, Basketball, and Baseball. There are may clubs such as Student Government, Model UN, Chess Club, Girl Up, and Medical Explorers Club. The students and teachers are all respectful and the school environment is enjoyable. What could be done better is that the school district should spend more time reviewing the qualifications of their teachers and increase the contact that their administration has with students.
