Harford County School System is an excellent District for students to attend. While it is close to many major cities for field trips and academic ventures, Harford County Schools maintain the smaller town feel with personalized attention from administrators and teachers that add to the overall quality of education in a safe and nurturing environment. There is a family feel among staff, students, parents, and adminstrators that contributes to the overall experience of being part of the Harford County School District.

Overall, I loved the experience of being in Harford County Public Schools. Many of the students and faculty throughout all schools are supportive and kind to one another. There are times when schools throughout HCPS get to together to support each other in big events like state championships. The entirety of HCPS has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and makes it one of the best counties to go to school!
In my experience, HCPS has been a good provider of education throughout the years. They have very good teachers and the sports activities are very fun and exciting. I recommend HCPS!
