The academics at this school are wonderful and challenging, I constantly strived to do my best in this pleasant environment and I would totally come here again if given the opportunity. Many, though not all, teachers are very informed on their subject and will do everything in their power to develop you as a student There are few clubs and no sports, so think about that before you come here. Additionally, we do miss out on some common high school experiences/events, so consider that before you come too. The food is always chicken and it is wet. I would not recommend the food, so either bring your lunch or prepare your stomach. Overall, this school has been quite fun and I can't wait to come here again next year!

Sure, you receive a High School diploma and an Associate’s degree, however, depending on what you want to major in, you’d probably have to do 4+ years. Anyway, there’s no sports or clubs/extracurricular activities. While going here, I realized that it was not my place. As a person who wants to major on the Arts, there’s nothing that can help you do that (or other majors outside the science field/related). I appreciate the opportunity but I don’t think it’s worth the time and struggle if you are not going to study or at least do something related to what you want to do in life. While attending, I was told that there are only be two “career paths” for my college years: Teacher prep and health career prep. Besides that, you didn’t have a choice. The communication from parents to the administration is horrible, we would call over and over again and no one would pick up. If you want to major in something else, pick another school that suits your needs.
I am speaking of Prince George's Community College as a whole, not necessarily the Health Sciences Department because this was the only option for PGCC. Nonetheless, I have found my experience here to be enjoyable, and although I look forward to graduating in the spring, I will miss the campus and its faculty. For the most part, I believe that administrators handle student affairs in a very organized fashion; their implementation of technology is likely the reason behind that. Overall, I would recommend this school to those residing in Prince George's County.
