Why Do You Go Public?

The “Why I Go Public” campaign is a living, breathing representation of how community members in Bucks and Montgomery counties feel about their public schools. Parents, teachers, administrators, legislators, and business people were all asked to weigh in on education in traditional public schools, and what it means to them. Follow us on our Facebook page to see additional comments and reactions, and keep up-to-date on the great things happening in our local public schools. #GoPublic

 

From a head of state to super stars in the world of sports and entertainment, from Nobel Prize winners to business greats, thousands of Bucks and Montgomery counties’ successful grads are symbols of the power of a great education when you #GoPublic. Check out some of our Illustrious Alumni!
