Henrico County Public Schools Reviews

HCPS is a great place, provided you live in the right part of Henrico. West end schools have it wonderful, although the people can be subpar, but god forbid you live in the east end. I go to Henrico High School, in the middle of the county, (fittingly) also in the middle re: funding and accreditation. It's also an outdoor school (there are sevaral, including a few elementary schools) which was a horrible idea. Until the most recent renovation, they would require students to stand outside in freezing midwinter rain until their teachers got to school because admin didn't feel like providing anywhere inside for them to be. This has actually improved! How lovely! Specialty centers are great, as is the gifted program. Overall, there are definitely worse places to be.

It has been an up and down roller coaster ride since kindergarten. Being stressed due to all the homework and projects but that's every high school student. I love living in Henrico county and attending their schools. I've made many friends and love the school system and the opportunities the school system has given me. If it wasn’t for Henrico county schools, I wouldn’t be the person I am today! From learning my times tables, to trig. I am very grateful for attending school here. It is a great county, very family friendly and community oriented and you feel welcome at all schools and school functions.
As a student at the Freeman Highschool leadership program a I have had a fanstastic experience with henrico county public schools! The PTA is amazing and there is plenty of funding and cooperation for exciting events. The academics and teachers are amazing especially in the history, English, and science departments. However, I have found the math and language departments to be lacking quite a bit. Overall henrico county is a fantastic school system and a great place for kids to go to school.
