Montgomery County Public Schools Reviews
The supports for students with disabilities are excellent! Overall, the academics are also fantastic. There are a few teachers here and there who are not great but generally speaking the teachers are top-notch. The focus on sports and popularity is overdone, in my opinion. It would be great if academic achievement was celebrated as much as cheerleading and sports achievement.
My sister and I have been very fortunate to receive our education from MCPS! The teachers in our county truly care about our students and help us if we are falling behind. MCPS has always done a good job making the student population feel safe. I went to Clarksburg High School. During my time there, the school experienced multiple deaths of students. The school came back and offered counseling if we needed it and support. I have been very blessed to have gone to school in Montgomery County.
Montgomery County Schools is undeniably a very impressive school district. I am satisfied with my education and the resources provided. The teachers are helpful, the students are engaged, and there are endless extracurricular opportunities. There are resources for students that need extra help and are demanding courses for those who seek a challenge. However, there are issues throughout the county that the school board fails to address efficiently. For example, parents will be notified about hate-related incidents in the schools, but no clear action can be seen to improve the situation. There is an air of stress among students in this county who are often pressured to attend premier universities and focus on test scores above all else. Finally, there have been issues in recent years of grade inflation, because the county has made it A's an overly achievable goal for its students. Overall, students will receive exemplary educations at MCPS and will graduate prepared for the future.
