Howard County Public Schools Reviews
Review Howard County Public Schools
The Howard County Public School system was a fantastic change for me. I lived in St. Louis, Missouri previously and my grades were terrible; I was not given the resources to succeed. When I moved here, I brought my GPA from a 1.95 average to a 3.5! The teachers care about your wellbeing and whether or not you are TRULY learning in their class. The parents are so much more involved, and the students actually care about school themselves. My one complaint were the food options at the cafeterias, other than that, I had an absolutely great experience attending a HCPSS school!
As a student who has been attending schools here in Howard County for the past two years, I must say that it has been one of the best school experiences thus far. Though the system pushes us to be in a more competitive environment, it also pushes us to help us achieve more and be the best students we can be. The teachers are people we can easily go to and ask for help if we have any questions and the different activities my high school offers to the students are limitless, with there being at least one thing suitable for everyone! To be honest, there is no other school district I would rather live in.
Howard County public school are considered very competitive in the district! I have been living in Columbia for about 5 years. The most important reason of the "caring" parents I know live in Howard County, so that their children would benefit from it.
