Marriotts Ridge has great environment for students to learn. The facility also guides students to fall into the right path and helps them with their future decisions on colleges. Our school is strong in science and math, so students who wanted to prove their skills were successful by joining the science club and math club. One think I would want the school to change is college readiness. I would want the school to help us more in deciding colleges because it is difficult for first timers. By more of a clear guide, students will be ready.

I don't like going to school in general but I have tons of complaints about this one. First of all, who in their right mind starts school at 7:20 am? It's probably more of a county-wide issue but you're making us study so so much, staying up till 3 am or pulling all nighters, and then expect us to be at the bus stop as early as 6:20? We need 8 hours of sleep, not 3. For more school centered issues, this school gives an immense amount of pressure to get superb grades. If you tell someone your grade and it's as little as a B, you get weird looks. C is supposed to be AVERAGE!! B is supposed to be ABOVE AVERAGE!! A is supposed to be EXCELLENT!! Everyone's mental health is deteriorating in this school because of the terrible standards that follow grading. I'd really love to not get made fun of for getting a 89% on my test. Oh also, I don't feel safe at this school! Some kid brought a literal knife in to class and nobody does anything? Oh, but if I get a B on something it's so awful..
Marriotts Ridge is an academically competitive high school located in Howard County, Maryland. Its setting is mostly rural(next to a farm). The two most common races are white and asian. Outside of academics, the school is has a history of strength in soccer, tennis, and golf. The music programs are also decent. The school is very good, and it prepares you well for college. The only thing is sometimes there is a lack of spirit.
