Alexandria City Public Schools Reviews

Having gone to two public schools in Alexandria, Francis C. Hammond (middle school) and T.C.Williams (high school), I am proud to have through Alexandria public schools. I transferred from McDonogh in Owings Mills, MD and even with all the private funding McDonogh is able to do, the resources provided by Alexandria public schools is unrivaled. For starters the campus itself is beautiful. In the late 2000's, Alexandria decided to invest 100 million dollars into a modern school able to accomedate programs such as a planetarium and roof top garden to offer students unmatched education opportunities. Every student is issued a laptop to help with homework and push the school's environmental agenda. The teachers are just as diverse as the students and cultural mixing allows students to mingle with someone from native to any country in the world.
