Fauquier County Public Schools Reviews

At Kettle Run High School, the opportunities in STEM-related courses are extremely limited. For instance, we currently only have 1 teacher teaching computer science courses. The sad thing is that there aren’t even many students interested in computer science or high-level math courses. There are plenty of bright kids with lots of potential at Kettle Run and I think if the school counselors and administrators encouraged students to take more challenging STEM courses then they would be more prepared for college and/or future jobs. Students should also be more educated on the vast applications and opportunities in the STEM field.

I have been enrolled in Fauquier county schools my entire life. The teachers and staff make every student feel welcomed and included. I have gone through many struggles growing up and I have always had teachers who are understandable and always willing to lend a helping hand to me. With the help of my hardworking teachers, I have been able to get myself on the right path for college. I appreciate all the help that my teachers and coaches have given me through my 12 years in the Fauquier County school system. Each new year I am offered new opportunities that have helped me prosper into the person I am today. The staff are always looking for ways to improve the school system and new ways of learning which makes school enjoyable.
I feel like certain teachers make going to a Fauquier County public school worth it but in terms of education, I'm not so sure. I have some teachers that really care about my life and education and my well-being and some that truly don't. The teachers that cared are the ones I learned from, the teachers that don't are the ones that make me hate going here. We have an actual teacher shortage in Virginia, so just about anyone is getting hired and that isn't necessarily good when it comes to handling peoples futures and young minds.
