I've lived in Prince George's County majority of my life. I relocated briefly for a few years and went to Montgomery Coutny, MD mainly so that my oldest son could have better educational opportunities. Unfortunately, I moved back to PG county and what a difference. My biggest concern is the schools. I am not sure where the budget is going for the schools but I will say this, coming back to PG County was alarming and eye opening. It showed me what we lacked in the PG County schools. Although, I have loved this County for so long it may fit my family to move on and relocate permanently. I am hoping the resources improve and school sizes improve in PG County especially since it looks like property taxes maybe going up AGAIN.

Prince George's is great for families and offers affordable living. The public school system could use some improvement, overall PG County is a great place to live!
As someone who has been immersed in the community of PG County, being able to be apart of a thriving, growing family is a treasure. There is a lot of work to be done definitely, but the growth I've seen in my community where I grew up in has truly made me want to make a difference in the lives of those who want to contribute their talents and experiences to the world. There are many opportunities within Prince George's County that are very important to the growth of the family. I would love to see more community outreach opportunities and meetings with communities to help bridge barriers and create successful pathways for students like myself to succeed.
