Welcome to St. Mary's County Public Schools (SMCPS) where our four year graduation rate is 91.5%. With approximately 17,840 students, our school system is large enough to offer a wide variety of academic programs and services, and small enough to maintain an atmosphere of friendliness, helpfulness, and personalized service. As a school system, we are focused on student achievement and assuring that our students meet rigorous standards; at SMCPS all children can and will learn. Our goal is to focus our efforts to create a total community committed to learning and safety for ALL children. By "Working Hard and Being Nice," we have an opportunity to provide an optimal teaching and learning environment that is second to none. We look forward to working with you as we "Chart a Course to Excellence."
