Montgomery County Public Schools Reviews
I think it is a great school system but there are issues with leadership at schools. We have amazing academics though and most teachers I've had experience with have been really great. However, I wish issues with teachers and principals were handled better. Sometimes things are done and should be handled but they just get ignored. Teachers could be treated better by the county and I wish the leadership had more former teachers in it. We have a lot of diversity in students and staff which is great because from the beginning of my school years I've been surrounded by lots of races and people from lots of backgrounds. My biggest issue in high school is I feel like they dont focus on college readiness enough. I think they should do a lot more to make sure we are prepared for the next steps in life.
Although there are some very caring staff members in the special education department they are constantly being tied up in red tape and higher ups keep them from helping many special needs students to save money. IEPs are designed to find ways out of helping autistic students. There is also a unfair balance between schools with Blacksburg receiving multiple new school buildings in the past few years, including 2 elementary schools within sight of each other, while some Christiansburg schools are 70 years old.
I have been in the Montgomery County Public Schools my entire school life and the experience has been fantastic. The teachers, students, and faculty have been so amazing and very understanding. The schools prepare their students with great thinking and understanding of what colleges are looking for and expecting of their future students. Being in these schools have made me a better person socially, emotionally, and physically because they help you become open and make you feel so welcomed in their schools. I truly love and will miss not only my high school but also Montgomery county. We may be small but we are very loving and caring and our schools make our students feel safe, happy, and ready for the real world.
