Somerset County Public Schools Reviews

I am proud to be a Crisfield High School alum. The sense of community is great and you can tell the teachers value the success of their students. However, sometimes they spoil the kids, which leads to lack of college readiness. The only sport that is truly recognized is basketball, which is a shame since so many students who play other sports work diligently to balance athletics and academics. There also aren't as many sports and clubs to participate in as other schools have, which is probably due to the decline in enrollment year after year.The English and science departments are quite remarkable; the social studies is average; the math is poor. The school is also old and could use a renovation. I especially liked the positive behavior incentive program, pep rallies, sports games, and "famous" visitors. The school spirit made CHS a fun place to be.

What I liked was the teachers. What I disliked was the easiness and repetitiveness of the things they taught us. They did nothing to prepare us for the real world. It seemed we were only preparing for another state test to see what we had learned and I had taught us nothing new. I've been recently encouraged by the things I've read coming from the Somerset County School Board. They are trying to alleviate these very real problems. They can see the necessity for change in order to help and prepare we young adults for the real world.
I would like to add that for the first time in 18 years I have now been challenged academically. I
t wasn't until I came to college thank you so much for awakening my brain and spirit.
I've been in the Somerset county school district for a while now and I do believe it is a great school system, but it has a lot of flaws. The teachers seem that they do not care for our future or education. For example, teachers at my school like Washington high do not care for us. We have to take care of our problems oursleves.
