Montgomery County Public Schools Reviews

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!
Review Montgomery County Public Schools
I love the teachers and students in this district, as well as the academic opportunities. Some of the regulations put on high school students are too stressful on the students. If we miss four days of school, then we are required to take final exams and seen as "Not in Good Standing" which means we can't walk across the stage at graduation. In addition, we are threatened with ISS if we are caught waiting for rides in the cafeteria after school. Another thing I wish could be changed is the school lunch. Most students don't eat lunch at the schools because it is either too expensive or disgusting. The final thing I would like to see changed would be standardized testing-the SOL. I feel this test shouldn't be administered as it limits the teachers' ability to teach the students and putting unnecessary stress on teachers and students as early as the third grade. The only standardized test we should be required to take is the SAT.
I had a great education at Christiansburg High School in MCPS. I believe that what I learned there fully prepared me for my time in college. I know one area in particular is in my writing. During high school I had a couple very strict English teachers that were very critical of our writings and format. Now, when I write a paper or send my resume somewhere I am confident that I have sent a strong product and I can only accredit that to those teachers.
