    "I honestly love this high school. What you see in PBHS is what you will see in the real world. The teachers are more than willing to help us. Also there is a new building so there will be a lot of room for everyone. I really love the signature program because it is highly useful. I am in Medical & Health Sciences and I love it. The principal is sooooooo sweet also. You can comfortably talk to her. Also if you dont think its safe, there are more than 118 cameras with ID so you dont need to worry about your child. I really recommend this school for anyone who is interested in medicine!"

    "These reviews are bogus. Paint Branch is a substandard school with substandard staff and substandard administration. It is a cestpool. Do your research; read the performance measures for the county and see where Paint Branch falls in the ratings. You don't have to listen to me; read for yourself."

    "Paint Branch High School has got to be one of THE BEST if not THE BEST high schools in the Montgomery county area. The staff there, and the environment there is such a loving, warm, and challenging environment; the teachers and staff care very deeply about their students, almost like their own kids. There are also several programs in place in Paint Branch such as; The Medical Careers Program, where students get real life experience and gain knowledge about the hospital, and medical careers, there's TV production/media, there's Academy of Finance where kids learn about money management and more, and the list goes on. It's also highly diverse, and offers numerous extracurricular activities. Although it's great (almost a 5), I think some improvements can still be made, but having graduated there, I only see greatness and potential in this warm, nurturing environment."

    "I loved reading the Whitman HS parents' reviews... they paid a 'premium' to live in Whitman's district to send their kids there. Paint Branch is a great school with real-world experiences, like interacting daily with students and teachers from all over the world. The academics and athletics are competitive, the staff is committed and caring (many are PBHS graduates themselves), and the community/school spirit cannot be matched... that's why kids come to Open House and choose PB over Springbrook and Blake. You feel welcome, you know you're getting a great education, and you go off to college well-rounded and confident. Nice job PB!"

    "I agree with the other parents - Paint Branch is a GREAT SCHOOL. My son is a freshman there and loves it, as do his father and I. The open house last fall sold us and he is in the Physics 9 program. The signature program there is great and offers such opportunities. The freshman houses make the transition from middle school much easier. I can't say enough about the school."
