I generally think MCPS is a good county based on the academics, diversity, teacher, and etc. The teachers are really nice and their teaching skills are very well. The opportunities in my school which is Thomas Wootton, are endless. There are so many clubs and activities to join. The sports team is also great. I am in Wootton's swimming team, and we often compete with our MCPS schools. All of them are well trained and really nice. Staff, teachers, facilities are great! The student - teacher interaction is also honest and carefree which is great. Even doing quarantine, my teachers aren't slacking off, and grading the papers as soon as possible and giving their own thought on it. Usually, online school would be harder but MCPS made it so much easier in my opinion. Everything is so clear and understandable for students. Since the AP exams are coming up, and mine is this Friday, my AP teacher has tried her best to help us get a 5 on the exam. I overall love MCPS!
I love Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS)! They listen to the students and give us so many opportunities for achievement. They make sure schools are helping us succeed academically with the amazing teachers and curriculum. In this current year, they have implemented ways in order for us to be mentally healthy. Once a week, we have time to focus on our mental health so we can build ourselves up as people. Even the staff are worked with on this topic so they can help us! MCPS has also helped me socially by providing and supporting many extra curricular programs for me to branch out. As someone who is rather shy, this has helped me have the best high school experience possible.
