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.

Overall, Roosevelt has the best school spirit in the county. No other school can compare. We've dominated in most sports over the past seven years and I believe that the academic requirements of Roose far exceed that of other schools when compared apples to apples. My brother graduated from Roosevelt and I'll be graduating from Roosevelt this year. I've been heavily involved in various activities. There's something for everyone! My principal, Mr. Shands, is the best. The other administrators are a little sketchy. The only issue I've had is with the scheduling. Each year schedule requests are made and every year during the following school year we have to fight to get into classes that we actually requested. I even tried this year to have my schedule changed before school started and still wasn't successful. I will not miss that part.
I am an 8th grader at Benjamin D. Foulois Creative and Performing Arts Academy and I have had an amazing time there! I play the flute there are there are so many opportunities to explore within your art form and meet new people that can better your expertise. I have lived in this county for my whole life. For the county as a whole, it’s pretty great, with the education opportunities, especially with the high schools available. There has always been a high cleanliness at all the schools I have been to and all of the teachers have been very respectful towards me and my peers.
