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.

I enjoyed my time at a Frederick County school in terms of both academics and social life. Academically, I have always been able to find assistance in pushing myself and better improving my skills in a wide range of subjects. Socially, there were many kind faces among both adults and students. Everyone could find at least one teacher to become close with and build bonds with over the four years, giving an opportunity for students to confide in a friend if needed. There has been some noticeable bias towards certain aspects such as sports, but the overall community is supportive of all.
FCPS has pros and cons just like any other school system. The staff I interacted with were phenomenal and most of them really did desire to have their students learn and reach their true potential academically. Through the advanced courses (AP), I do feel that I was prepared for my current college courses, even more than prepared in some cases.
The student body could be a challenge at times, but similar to anywhere else, you just have to be careful who you choose to build friendships with and be conscious of who/what is influencing you.
