Cecil County Public Schools Reviews

Overall, the school is great, but there are little changes that need to be made. I have gone to the office multiple times about bullying and yet the administration does nothing, claiming it "should just be left alone." Another thing is that the gym becomes so hot that kids actually get sick from the heat and even pass out! The school is great but could definitely use a bit more adinistrative direction when it comes to bullying. Also, with the lack of exams, the students tend to struggle wit hthe transition between high schol and college due to the lack of homework and test practice.

Cecil County public schools are excellent they offer a good education as well as the ability to be an active member in the school. They offer pep rallies, sports events, dances, as well as gaining knowledge. Cecil county created a technology school allowing students to start their career early and have the ability to graduate with a license. I wish Cecil schools prepared me for not only college but for life as well. I wish they had a class that taught about taxes, or handling loans. Those types of classes would be beneficial and help students in the future.
I currently am enrolled in perryville high school, located within the Cecil County district. The teachers employed at Perryville are some of the best I have ever known. Each and every one of them cares about the student. The care goes beyond that of a grade point average. Most teachers want their students to get passing grades in the class and move on. Perryville teachers will take the extra time to make sure all students fully understand the concept before moving on. The teachers care more about student learning than overall grades. However, the school has a low budget, making funds scarce. the amenities are worn down, and the lockers are over thirty years old. Overall, the school is above average due to the teachers within, but the school itself is worn down.
