Lynchburg City Public Schools Reviews

Lynchburg City Schools is a very diverse and well rounded academic school district involving several public schools within the surrounding community. Partnerships throughout the community allow for a better experience for students of all ages from K-12. However, if I had to change anything it would be to make the necessary arrangements for students who are unable to afford school lunches / go home each day hungry due to not being able to either afford or eat the food provided to them.

All of the administrators, staff, teachers, etc., are dedicated to seeing their students succeed! The schools have new and updated technology which is beneficial to the different learning styles of their students.
I enjoy Lynchburg City Public Schools overall due to their cooperation and effectiveness throughout my years spent with the school system. I have made incredible friends and joined sports teams that have taught me a lot about teamwork and what it means to become a part of what you could even consider a family. This especially applies to cross country. Alongside this, the facilities are relatively nice, and the faculty are all great at incorporating both work and play as well as focusing on the success of each individual student. Altogether, I thoroughly enjoy Lynchburg City Public Schools and am proud to attend a school within the district.
