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!

I enjoyed the diversity of Chesterfield County Public Schools. I think the fun part about going to school was seeing the different cultures and ways of life of my classmates. Their ESL program was a learning experience for people outside of it. There were many events that you could participate in . The school lunch wasn't bad, but the food staff are very nice and understanding. A very good county!
I appreciate that Chesterfield County Public Schools allows students with different interests to pursue them by having specialty centers at certain schools with specific focuses. Students who are interested in the fine and performing arts, I.T., engineering, medicine, humanities, and more are given the opportunity to learn about their focus areas, and ensure that it is the correct career path for them. Although, the social climate of these schools is controversial, regarding race, religion, sexual orientation, and financial status. Minority tend to be discriminated against, which I'm sure stretches far beyond this county. There is a lack of academic opportunity, profiling by adults and fellow students, and an overall disadvantage within the school system in all aspects. Students who aren't given the time of day due to lack of empathy and understanding from their teachers and faculty fall behind, and are trapped in a fixed perspective of no motivation to learn.
