I love the teachers and students in this district, as well as the academic opportunities. Some of the regulations put on high school students are too stressful on the students. If we miss four days of school, then we are required to take final exams and seen as "Not in Good Standing" which means we can't walk across the stage at graduation. In addition, we are threatened with ISS if we are caught waiting for rides in the cafeteria after school. Another thing I wish could be changed is the school lunch. Most students don't eat lunch at the schools because it is either too expensive or disgusting. The final thing I would like to see changed would be standardized testing-the SOL. I feel this test shouldn't be administered as it limits the teachers' ability to teach the students and putting unnecessary stress on teachers and students as early as the third grade. The only standardized test we should be required to take is the SAT.

I had a good four years in this school district and it has grown a lot in the four years I have been here. There is nothing I would really like to change about this school district, only to see it grow and get bigger over time.

Montgomery county is a very safe place to work and go to school. Some of the facitlities are old though and could use updating.
