Poquoson City Public Schools Reviews

Poquoson is a great, community-oriented school that encompasses a true feeling of support for one another. The school has a high level of school spirit, especially in athletics and during spirit weeks throughout the year. In addition, the faculty and administration is always supportive of the student body and play a key role in the overall positive atmosphere of the building. However, the school as a whole is out dated and not adequately fit to provide a high level of education. The technology is not up to standard with the ever-evolving capabilities of today's software. In addition, the school does not feel safe. About half of the walls in the building are only temporary and made out of plastic. All factors considered, Poquoson High School is an above average venue for receiving an education and continues to strive to make a positive impact on anyone who attends the school.

My personal experience while attending Poquoson high school was filled with more than education. I learned the value of friendship, hard work, and sportsmanship. I had many great accomplishments during my high school career in Poquoson City Public Schools, such as becoming volleyball state runner up two years in a row. Along with the positives that came with high school, there are always negatives. Poquoson has many flaws, one being the discrimination issue in our town. This is a problem I deeply care about and hate to think of my city as such hateful people. The schools system does not really help this cause, and just hide the obvious fact that our area is the issue. Changes I want to make within our community is bringing blame and punishment for the ridiculous and harmful actions caused by students at my school. Hiding from the problems make us weak and shows that we do not really care about the big situation.
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!
