Montgomery County Public Schools Reviews

I've lived in Montgomery County my whole life and have gone to elementary, middle school, and high school school within the county public schools. I've enjoyed all my years and feel very confident about my transition in to college. I know renovations are in the near future for my high school, but one thing I would change is the condition of the schools. Many are very old--some are new, clean, and big--including the schools I went to. This didn't inhibit my growth as a student, but a nicer school would have been a more encouraging environment. At my high school the faculty and resources are amazing and I feel that I have everything I need to excel. The school system looks out for all students, providing all levels of academics courses. The diversity throughout the county ranges from all races, social classes, backgrounds, etc. The county is very diverse and we take pride in it!

Montgomery County Public schools have served me well from K-12.
I have learned so much from the system. Teachers were dedicated and put in effort to make sure that every student was understanding the material and not falling behind (without slowing down the entire class).

If I could change one thing, it would have to be the starting times. Kids are waking up too early. I know first hand that it is hard to retain knowledge in the earlier classes.

One other thing I would change (bring back) is showering after gym class. They would only give us 10 minutes to change clothes! This resulted in kids not participating because they didn't want to get sweaty. The kids that didn't care smelt pretty gross, and this could contribute to sicknesses in the school.

Overall the system has helped me a great deal in my knowledge.

*ps teach kids about student loans and how to do their taxes :)
Great school system for the longest time. Still a great one, if you consider all the others in the country. However, they have eliminated final exams. I feel the are necessary in HS since its part of college and growing up. Also, the have a 50% rule for grading. This means that students get 50% on work completed for their "effort". What! What about they get their real grades. Also, they can reassess quizzes they take. Why? We're lowering the bar and its not helping in the long run.
