We are PCSing to Ft. Meade this summer from overseas, so we won't be able to visit the area before relocating. We are looking at Middle and High schools for our boys. We are looking at Ellicott City in Howard Cty and Arnold, MD near Annapolis. Any recommendations for schools - Howard Cty vs Anne Arrundel Cty? Pros and Cons for each? Our boys are avid hockey players too. Looking for good hockey programs in this area as well. We are planning on renting in a safe place with good schools, good hockey and family friendly. Any advice?

Try GreatSchools - Public and Private School Ratings, Reviews and Parent Community and put in the zip and state you are interested in. They will have parent reviews.

Here is school information for Howard County: Howard County Public School System I know that Howard Co does have some hockey teams at some of the high schools but they are not "official" and they use the local area rinks to play.

Here is Anne Arundel County Info: Anne Arundel County Public Schools

Howard County's Huskies youth hockey league is very active. http://howardhuskies.org/ Their home rink is in the heart of Columbia, near Rts 29 and 175,

As a poster above stated, high school hockey exists in Howard County, but it isn't an official school sport. I think all of the high schools except 1 or 2 usually field a team.

Just wanted to mention the Piney Orchard ice rink, which is in the community of Piney Orchard (Odenton mailing address). I had a friend who lived nearby and played there and really liked it.

My friend's kids take figure skating lessons at Laurel Ice House, and they have one rink dedicated to hockey. We are all from Buffalo...we like the ice there. ;-)
