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!

In particular, there are several teachers in the Montgomery county school system who are excellent leaders and passionate about helping their students learn. The teachers engage with students and offer any available resources that will benefit students in their education. With this being said students began to show their care for school knowing positive role models are around to instruct them.
I really wish the MPS would take education more seriously. A lot of the buildings are very old and damaged, which is a major health risk. The quality of education in traditional schools needs drastic improvement. It doesn't seem like the school board has been doing much to help either situation, and it's really sad because it is hurting students more than anything. Teachers also need to be paid better.
