Throughout my experience within Calvert County Public Schools, my time has been exceptional. Not only are the students fun, but he teachers too! Whenever I have a problem with a student or a class, I definitely have school facility I can rely on and trust with my issues. I have always had a place in the school system, and I am more than happy I was able to attend Calvert County Public Schools for all 12 years and kindergarten of my school career. All of the schools are new and updated and us students have no problems with anything in the new buildings. All of the technology and books are newer too which means we don’t have to pull out a book that’s been buried since King Tut has been. My overall experience of the school system has been a 5/5 star experience and on top of that, and EXECELLENT experience!

I had a great time at Northern High School and Northern Middle School. I transferred to Northern Middle School at the end of 2006. I remember there were three weeks left in the school year and the last thing I wanted to do was go to a new school. The students made me feel at home immediately. I recall thinking it was strange how hospitable my peers were at such a young age.

Northern High School was no different, but as a black male, there is an atmosphere of ignorance and covert racism that you must learn. Some students are just ignorant, while others are fully devoted to prejudice and racism. I had a great time in my classes, like many students I wish that I had done better. The sports teams are great! The clubs are fun and I can say that you do learn real-life experience from being a part of them.
The atmosphere that schools in Calvert County is truly amazing. The student is in the best interest of teacher, and the teachers are willing to meet any needs that will enable their students to learn to the best of their abilities. It's clear that CCPS takes pride in the teachers they hire; The teachers behold the most important qualities required to optimize learning in the classroom and obviously enjoy their job. Along with the teachers, the administration does an excellent job conducting school activities and optimizing opportunities for their students. Overall, my experience with Calvert County Public schools has been exquisite.
