Being in Poquoson since 3rd grade, there have been many ups and downs in my years. I've always had help from teachers when I absolutely needed it and I could always count on my grades to take me far in life as it already has. Poquoson is a predominantly white school system, easily 90% white. It is one of the safest school system in the entire state and it has some of the best academics from a public school. I would definitely recommend children learning here if they are ready to take their college by storm when the time comes. I know I will!

We are a military family who moved from an exceptional school where my son was very popular. We were scared he wouldn't adjust well or that it'd be cliquish. Nope! The teachers & students were accustomed to military families & welcomed us warmly. My son's teacher stayed after school with him for three tutoring sessions at no cost because we came from a common core state & Virginia isn't one. The math adjustment was tough! His grades have shot up to A/B honor roll, which is a first for my ADHD child. He is thriving in every way. I looked at dozens of schools in the area & feel so blessed that we were led to choose this one. The staff, faculty & students are all devoted to the school being the best it can be. I never saw a school where the students had 'buy-in' to help other kids around them to succeed. It's remarkable!
Poquoson Public Schools offer a wide variety of activities for students such as band. Poquoson's band has connected me to many of my closest friends and was overall a very positive experience. It taught me useful values such as dedication and initiative. However, the learning techniques were very limited in diversity and it would be beneficial to all students' if the school was to expand its teaching techniques. I believe in doing so, it would further help narrow the gap in all students academic achievement, better preparing them for life.
