Montgomery County Public Schools Reviews

I have enjoyed growing up in this school system. They have done what they could to help with college, from offering college classes for free to working with the local community college so that students may attend the college for free after graduating high school and having a decent GPA. A lot of the teachers go out of their way to be there for their students and work with students to raise grades. As a whole, MCPS works well together. They have shared facilities, come together to support each school when it went through a hard time, and worked to make sure every graduation is on a different day, so our small area doesn't get overwhelmingly crowded. They have also done away with class rank so that students don't feel as much pressure to be "top of their class," instead they feel appreciated as a student and feel equal to their peers.

I love the friends and the majority of the teachers there. They are what make attending high school at Christiansburg a very good thing. Problems come about when the school decides to tighten certain policies (such as dress code and parking policies) and are not willing to listen to student opinions on the subject. Where academics are concerned, the majority of core classes are focused on teaching to the standardized test (known as "Standards of Learning" or "SOL" for short). Classes tend to be more focused on students passing the test rather than being prepared for life.
I love how much the teachers care about the students well being. I find that to be a necessity when going to school because it makes kids want to go to school. We also have a wonderful athletic program with amazing coaches and we have ones many state championships in the past few years. I wouldn't change anything about my school!
