Montgomery County Schools Reviews
As a senior in the Montgomery County School system, I cannot speak for all of the schools in the system but I generally believe that the schools can improve on some area. I attend one of the three magnet high schools in Montgomery and my experience here has allowed me to be prepared for college and test readiness. In my opinion, I believe that the school system can pay more attention towards the other schools in the system as I feel like they are getting shoved to the back. There is room for change in this school system and I think with the appropriate amount of attention the system can thrive!
I favor the standards based curriculum in that it aligns with national standards. Additionally, there are interval assessments to track student's progress. The assessments also are used to drive instruction for individual needs. Also, parents receive mid-nine weeks progress reports, and they may receive them at anytime per request. Title I offers academic support in reading and math. At risk students are assigned to environments such as PACE and Second Chance to complete requirements for graduation. On the other hand, discipline is a problem in the traditional programs.
I have been a student with MPS for 12 years. The school system, has seen it's share of ups and downs and is currently under Intervention, which could lead to losing accreditation if proper measures are not taken. I have had the opportunity to work with some teachers who really seem to value students and their profession. However, there are a few who don't seem to care. It is my hope that the system will improve for all of those involved.
