Who We Are: Our Community and School Culture

  • Each of our schools’ leadership teams analyzed the factors that impact their students’ ability to engage deeply and achieve academic success. They shared stories of their students and families, some of whom are facing serious challenges associated with physical wellness, social-emotional stability, unique learning needs, family security, mental health, violence, and food/housing uncertainties. They discussed the obstacles that their students face daily when preparing to come to school on time, ready to learn.

    Questions such as the following drove discussions around Anne Arundel County: 

    • What are the challenges and obstacles that negatively affect our students’ engagement and achievement most significantly and why?
    • Are we analyzing our data and listening closely to learn about all of our students when we seek to understand our learners’ social-emotional and academic struggles?
    • How do cultural differences, language challenges, transportation difficulties, health problems, and frequent family relocation (mobility) serve as obstacles to school success for our students?
    • What resources and supports are available within AACPS and across our county to support students and families in need?  How do we help our families receive the supports they need?

Our School Culture

  • Below is the school’s story as seen through the eyes of school leaders. They discuss the culture of their school and the community.

    North County High School has been an integral part of northern Anne Arundel County since it first opened in 1990. Generations have passed through the hallways and we have established a tradition of being Studious, Thoughtful, Accountable, Noble and Determined, something we call: STANDing Tall. North County High School is a four-year comprehensive school that is strongly invested in the surrounding community. North County offers a wide variety of academic, co-curricular, and extracurricular options for students to choose from including Advanced Placement (AP), Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) and Advanced Via Individual Determination (AVID). North County also has a representative from Anne Arundel Community College located within the school to offer

    unique learning experiences to support college. Incorporated within the comprehensive school setting is an alternative program for students with emotional disabilities, who benefit from the program’s supportive and structured setting.
