Montgomery County Public Schools Reviews

Montgomery County High School has great opportunities for those who are willing to take them. The counselors are very helpful in getting you the help you need. However, there is a system in place called career paths that try to coral students into classes meant for vocationally oriented students. The counselors claim that they are mandatory but they aren't. Take what is best for your education. As for teachers, the ones I had changed my life and actually cared about the impact they had on my future. Often times, teachers will help you more than counselors, especially Willie Carver.

We have some pretty bad dipping and smoking problems at our school which seemingly go unnoticed. We have a lot of fights which are sometimes extremely violent. We have a basically brand new basketball court, however they rarely even let students use it because they don’t want the floors scuffed. If the basket ball court can’t be played on, then what purpose does it serve? Our teachers, for the most part, are extremely caring and well educated individuals who we get to know throughout the year. I feel as though my teachers are also my friends.
Overall, I believe the schooling I was provided at Montgomery County High School was a beneficial. The majority of teachers I had were wonderful and provided me with skills I can continue to use throughout life. If I had to change one thing about this school system, I would change the amount of power administration has over the teachers. Oftentimes, teachers can make decisions that are better for the school than administration could.
