Manassas City Public Schools Reviews
I enjoyed growing up in Manassas City Public Schools. I went to elementary, intermediate, middle, and high school in this school system. I made some of the best friends I will have for the rest of my life. As far as academics go, I do not know that I always received the best education from some of the teachers. Lots of my teachers made me feel very comfortable and understood me. Others did not. I always learned differently and slower than the others. Some teachers worked with me, others did not. Overall, growing up in Manassas City Public Schools was all a kid would ever want, but I believe I deserved more attention and better education. One of my favorite things was the diversity growing up in this school district. I never felt different or left out because the color of my skin and I am very thankful I was accepted as a person, as were many others.
I have had 4 children go through the Manassas City School System. I have also worked 30 years as a teacher in the school system. The district has changed over the last 20 years, from about 1% Hispanic to over 60% Hispanic. Even with all the change in diversity, my children have graduated and gone on to graduate and be accepted in top colleges. My oldest daughter went to the Naval Academy and swam all 4 years. My middle daughter graduated from the University of Richmond and ran track for 4 years. My twin sons are currently seniors have have been accepted to CalTech and CMI. Our students are able to be 1:1 for computers. The high school gives the students the opportunity to apply to the Governors school at the George Mason University.
Manassas City Public Schools has serious issues with teachers. They can't fill their open positions and the teachers they do have are overworked, tired, and underpaid. Class sizes are huge due to overcrowding and lack of staff. High turnover due to low pay and big classes. The high school is not clean, overcrowded like the rest of the district, also loads of fights. The kids coming from the middle school are underperforming and like to fight. There is an issue somewhere in between elementary school and middle school in preparing math/reading skills.
