Henrico County Public Schools Reviews
Learning from Henrico County Public Schools always helped me achieve my goals, and always supported me to succeed. It was an innovative leader in educational excellence and helped engage students in a more diverse, social, and civil learning experience. This school system never fails to inspire and empower students to become contributing citizens and great leaders!
Personally, I've had a good experience with HCPS with various opportunities given to me and the system able to work for me. Others, on the other hand, have not gotten those same opportunities, or even equitable ones, due to not being in as advanced of classes. Being unable to take advanced classes should never determine a student's future success, though in HCPS, along with the deep rooted issues in our American educational system as a whole, equal (or even equitable) opportunities are not provided. There are not enough racial bias training sessions, and when there are, teachers and educators do not take them seriously enough. Again, the system did work for me as a white affluent student who was determined "advanced" from a very young age. At the elementary level, kids are determined advanced or not advanced, providing some people with the ability to get ahead early, though what we need is equitable opportunities for everyone, even, and especially, at the roots of our school system.
I think Henrico county public schools is a great school district for anyone who loves innovation and diversity. When I grow up, I would like to be a doctor, and with this great school district, I can feel comfortable and excited to pursue a career no matter status, race, gender, or religion. However, in any situation, there will always be some aspects of the school systems that could make room for improvement or change. I believe in Henrico our schools need to improve on our social and public speaking schools, as well as life skills to supplement students who don't go to college or students after or in college. I do believe this isn't far from a truly great school system and will continue to strive for goals accommodating everyone.
