I have gone to multiple schools in Prince William County. It's sad to say but the best I have ever been mentally and academically being when I was online schooled at home. I've been to 2 different Public high schools and 2 public different middle schools. The environments in these schools were definitely toxic. For freshman year I went to one of the top-rated schools apparently but was so confused about how it was ranked so high. There are extreme drug problems among the students. Almost every student has a Juul or vapes. The teachers are very nice! The downside is if you don't understand anything in your classes they will pass you and make it extremely easy for you. I know I've down talked about these schools a lot and it could be worse, This is my personal experience. The worst part about it are the toxic students the upside is the academics and the caring teachers.

I loved all the experience regarding special programs they provide for their students. They give each and every student to explore who they are. They have something for everyone! I do wish they would try have more communication with students. I wish there was more activities regarding the school and policies that had student involvement. I wish that there was more attention being paid to underclassmen. Most of of the faculty is highly focused on senior which is understandable, yet underclassmen should be able to trust their counselors if there is a problem regarding a class or someone personal. I also wish there would be more school whom do an internship program for their senior to give the real world career experience ahead of college.
My personal experience with PWCS is overall decent! In moving to Virginia as an elementary school student, PWCS’ staff, teachers, and students were overall welcoming and undersatnding! There is little to change as I move along in my upper years of my education here except for better communication with teachers, staff, administrations, and most definitely other schools in the county.
