Frederick County Public Schools academics are very well! The teachers push the students to achieve in school, and be successful after school as well. The community is very small, so everyone is very close and nice to one another. Sporting events are very lively and school-spirited because of the amount of support from the fans of the town. Frederick County Public Schools is a great student for a student to grow and excel in school.

My overall experience has been very good and very bad. I love learning but when I find dead bugs and mysterious creatures crawling in my school, my full attention to learning becomes difficult. The people at Frederick County schools are nice people, but some are not good teachers, some teachers should have retired a long time ago and some are my favorite people. I wish we had more diverse classes of languages and sciences, those fun academic classes are left out and pushed to the side.
Frederick County Public Schools system is a contains nothing more than average schools. The schools within this district have their typical goods and bad, but for the most part they are typical public schools.

On paper, the academics look very appeasing to a parents eye. Most Frederick County Public Schools offer AP, honors, and regular classes. They also offer multiple foreign language and culture classes. However, the down fall is due to the teachers. Most teachers do the complete opposite of what they are supposed to do; nothing. Throughout all areas of study within the Frederick County Public School System there are teachers who would rather talk about their own interests rather than teach academics. This leads to an environment of resentful students who are not getting the education that is required in today's society.
