Prince George's County Public Schools Reviews
I've only been to three schools in Prince George's County and my experience has been good. I like the way how the county provides many resources to us students such as student learning hours. I also like how they help provide summer jobs to the students. Over the summer I completed my Student learning hours with their International Student Counseling Office and the staff was great! There was many different counselors from different schools and the way they helped the parents and children who would come in everyday was amazing. I've also attended their county fairs and I love how they're always there to provide support with literally anything. I do think they need to improve on helping schools with remodeling and providing more textbooks and technology. Also the teacher I've come into contact with are so generous and although they may be a little annoying at times is because they want their students to succeed. Overall if I had to rate PGCPS I would rate it a 9/10!
I have attended two Prince George's County schools. I started in Prince George's County in sixth grade, and then I transitioned to another school in Prince George's County once I reached eighth grade. I have truly enjoyed my academic and athletic career in this county. I have been accepted to over five colleges, and I do believe Prince George's County has prepared me to be college and career ready!
My experience in Prince Georges County Public Schools has been outstanding! Being at Fairmont Heights High School has exposed me to so much information to prepare me for the world after high school. I have had countless memories and experiences in PGCPS. All the sporting events and field trips made me feel part of another family. The people I've met have supported and pushed me to do better and reach my goals. One thing I would like to see change, however, is the school times. Sleep is a very important health factor. With numerous activities that students have or ones who work, School times should be adjusted for students to have enough time to wake up and start their day without rushing or feeling too exhausted to complete their assignments.
