I have been enrolled in Chesterfield County Public Schools my whole life. My parents were looking for the perfect place to raise their children and because of this, we ended up in Chesterfield, Virginia with the assurance of a great academic career! I went to Clover Hill and Winterpock Elementary School, both schools emphasized kids to be enthusiastic learners and good citizens. Swift Creek Middle and Cosby High School maintain the importance of learning by having amazing faculties! However, schools cannot accommodate every person; but it is clear that one of the top priorities in this district is to provide the best emotional support. This district does a great job of making their students feel safe during any school event. They have made clear to the students and guardians that they are in a welcoming community that emphasizes academic and emotional support! Overall, these schools have been amazing to me and continue to help me achieve all my goals!

CCPS is a great school system K-12! I am a senior in a CCPS high school and I can say that the system was messed up my freshmen year, but over the years, the schools have improved not only within the school, but constructive wise as well. The diversity was also terrible my freshmen year, it was mainly one type of people. This year is completely different! Most everything the principle puts up he also puts in spanish for our fellow spanish speakers!
My Chesterfield school has some great, encouraging teachers who love what they do and it shows in the expectations they put of us to prepare for college. School spirit is at an all time high this year, with each sport supporting other teams during off seasons. Friday night football games where the student section has a theme was so much fun and brought us all together. The diversity in my area has really prepared me for college and the career world where not everyone is the same or has the same thought process. The one thing I could see that needs significant change is for administration to bring in technology to assist with different processes. Everything that a senior would need for college applications or resources, should be accessed from the school website. Counseling forms should also be available online for atleast access, if not submission as well. The day of color coded printed forms has gone by. Let us all jump into the 21st Century with a smile. Go Knights!
