Charlottesville City Schools Reviews

I love my school. The Charlottesville community embraces diversity and as such as young group of people, it's amazing to see my peers extend their hands to how the value of our differences. CHS students especially organize various events to ensure that all other students are equal in more ways than one. SCA meetings are open to all and officials make it easy to contact them to voice an opinion. Faculty let their contact information be know to the school and answer every email within a day or two. Our school has grown closer and closer each year. Students have the opportunities to learn about people from all over and what makes their unique but connected

C'ville schools are very poorly rated on other sites because it has a huge amount of diversity. The city has only one school system so has very high achievers with excellent home environments (C'ville is filled with professors, doctors, researchers etc) but it includes people from all stripes. They have done an amazing job of making the most of that diversity and my daughter has thrived there. By far the best school opportunities in the area are found inside the city in my opinion.
Charlottesville city schools have a lot of programs that allow the students to get ahead and graduate with college courses and have many opportunities to help get us to a 4 year college, can start learning a new language in elementary and show children to treat others the same. Charlottesville City Schools need the change the support system they have and also the way of contacting parents in emergency situations. The teachers don't have that much support from their superiors.
