New Kent County Public Schools Reviews

I grew up in New Kent but ended up having to leave during my eighth grade year due to personal hardships and extreme bullying. I continued with online school until I decided to return for my senior year. The staff within the county were extremely kind and helpful. The high school guidance department were amazing. Teachers were average as far as helpfulness. There is virtually no violence, just the expected rednecks that attend because of the location in the middle of the country in Virginia. Overall, my experience was good. I would do it again if I could.

My grandparents, mother and sister all graduated from this school district and so will I! I love New Kent County and wouldn't change a thing.
New Kent has been my home for the past 7 years. I have loved how the school community takes you in and really makes you feel welcomed. They are very good about safety and what to do when something terrible has happened. The teachers are great people to talk to and learn from. i really feel like they want to be there. The only negative part is that this is my last year here! I am very sad but excited that next year when I visit I will be an alumni.
