Prince William County Public Schools has done a great job in ensuring safe policies. Administration takes the parent's and student's input into much consideration. Parents and students are always notified immediately when something occurs within a school or throughout the county. Academics are taken very seriously which as a student, makes me want to strive and excel while taking standardized tests and exams. A full range of academic programs are provided to accommodate many student's interests which is further preparation for students who wish to attend a college or university. The Prince William County Virtual High School is a great aspect for allowing students to receive credits during the school year or over the summer by taking selected courses. If I knew anyone moving to Virginia with children, I would certainly recommend to enroll them in the many schools that Prince William County Public Schools has to offer.

Prince William County Schools displays an excellent amount of diversity. There are a lot of students with different cultural backgrounds. Prince William County Schools hold events that support any ethnicity. There are some schools who also provide students with an International Baccalaureate Program. Students can take rigorous courses and push themselves. Also, Prince William County Schools supply students with many opportunities for college. For example, some of the schools have a college and career counselor in school who is willing help plan and arrange for their future. However, teachers do not meet the five stars. It seems that teachers are focused on teaching students material that is mainly for the SOL. Instead of learning material that can benefit students in the real world, it is focused on what will be on the final test. Teachers should prepare students with information that students can potentially profit from in college and in adulthood.
The level of diversity and acceptance is like no other . Regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender, the school administrators would treat everyone equally. There was no preference. Those who were a bit behind were helped to improve and encouraged to do so. There was always reward and recognition for those who worked hard academically. I experienced this first hand. I was once in an after school program called "bootcamp" in my elementary school which worked with students struggling in math. With the dedication and encouragement of the schools administration I slowly improved my ability to understand and solve math problems. Now fast forward a few years and math is my strongest subject. All through middle and high school as well as college I've been at the top percentile of my class in mathematics. Now I'm currently pursuing aerospace engineering . A very heavy math and science degree. I owe it all to my elementary school in PWCPS.
