The Academy of Health Sciences @ Prince George’s Community College Reviews

The chance to graduate with your diploma and Associates degree on the same day is too hard to pass up! As far as extracurricular activities, there are no sports available to the students throughout their four years here. They can join the college’s clubs in their junior year (which I definitely recommend). The cohort environment in the freshman and sophomore years often help with developing close friendships with the people that you spend the day with. But it also makes it difficult to build and maintain friendships with students outside of your cohort. Parent involvement is definitely discouraged by the school as they attempt to transform 14 year olds into independent college students. The school is small enough that the faculty actually knows and cares for each student. Also, many of the classes that aren’t college courses are Honors courses, which makes for a larger workload and an impressive transcript in senior year. All in all, I don’t regret my decision to attend.

The Academy of Health Sciences offers a free route to an Associate's Degree in general science. It is rigorous, they once overbooked my college schedule making me take an extra class more than everyone else. The majority of the staff are very nice and will take the extra step to create a respectful relationship with their students. The administration, on the other hand, can be very childish and will patronize us when mishaps happen. The small population of the school does add to the experience since it pushes us to become closer and reliant to one other, of course in a beneficial way. Outside of the high school part, the college is a totally different story. There are some intolerable teachers who do target AHS students but others do not. The Academy of Health Sciences does not offer clubs until junior year, but you still have to follow your class schedule.
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!
