I would like to see more drug control. The extra curricular activities are very good, I was on the dance team and it saves me from the heavy drug culture that was prominent at the school. There was a handful of teachers that were wonderful and invested in their students. They were supportive and friendly. Being in a small town, it made a being out of school difficult because everyone was on drugs.

In Montgomery County High School it is said that we focus on stem subjects, and in some cases we do but we need to focus on engineering a bit more having an uninterested teacher who barely teaches the class. In all other classes we have wonderful teachers who do an amazing job. Overall I would say that MCHS is very good but the engineering brings it down a bit.
Overall, I have really enjoyed my experience at Montgomery County High School. The courses I took were challenging, so of course, I hated the homework but I am very thankful for the opportunities provided to me. For anyone considering enrolling their kids at Montgomery County High School, I would say go for it. The academic choices are really great and the AB block schedualing makes High School easier.
