Prince William County Public Schools Reviews
Rating 3.94 out of 5 325 reviews
I enjoyed the second school I attended in Prince William county; however, I did not have a good experience at the first school.
The schools provide many resources for students and activities along with giving the students a voice in things that go on in the community.
Prince William County schools have very enthusiastic teachers, it also provides many opportunities for different students because of its specialized schools. For some change, I’d like to see better programs for bullying and more buses for students to get home on time.
Many great schools with a wide variety of programs especially within the high schools. Lots of money is invested into the buildings.
I feel the teachers in my county really care for their students. I say this because every teacher I have encountered in PWCS all wanted to see me succeed. The teachers in my county show they care by doing whatever it takes for you to pass their course. Also I feel that the activities all of the the schools I have attended from elementary to high school have all had lots of choices to choose from in terms sports and club activities which I feel helped shape me to become the individual I am today. While attending PWCS I felt safe and cared for every single day I would go to school. I was fortunate enough to attend Colgan High School a brand new school built with excellent resources and I feel we had the best access to modern equipment. Because of this I am grateful to have learned in such a modern school environment.
While being a large school, I felt the academics provide were of better-than-average quality with ample opportunities to succeed as a student. While my options as an aspiring artist were somewhat limited, I was happy to learn that I had the ability to graduate early online as a means to fulfill my remaining credit requirements.
My experience in prince William county is like most peoples nothing too exciting. The county itself is pretty good, I mostly just had problems at a certain school but overall I would give it 4 stars. The math and science programs are great and sports are a big thing here. Another great thing about this county would be the amount of high school there are here, you get the option to take a specialty program here which gets you the opportunity to really go to any high school you want. One thing I would change is the clubs and activities at certain schools like for example at my high school the after-school activities buses-only go to bus stops near the school. This is a big problem for students like me, I live far away from my school because I'm part of the specialty program, so because of that I barely get to join clubs or sports. Knowing that colleges are looking for students that do clubs and sports frequently, this is a really big problem for me and I bet for many other students too.
I've lived in Prince William County my whole life. I've seen people come and I've seen people go. I'm in my senior year now in high school and there's one thing I can tell you about Prince William County Schools is that they're simply just amazing. The teachers and staff no matter what grade will go the extra mile to assist any student in need. The academics are unique as they offer a wide variety of topics to learn from depending on what grade the student is in. Prince William County Public Schools also offer sports when the student reaches middle school. Each sport is super competitive as Prince William County Schools are a 6A division, which is the highest division In the state of Virginia. Once the student reaches high school they can have the chance of playing in college if they do so. Anywhere you go in Prince William you'll see a number of diverse groups, the same goes for their schools. Every student has a place where they can fit in and blossom!
Prince William County does care about students safety when it comes to weather but everything else really comes back to the exact school you attend because the experience varies for each school.
Great School District! I am a junior at Woodbridge senior high school and I would say that every school in this district provides fantastic education and support.
I got bullied a lot and the teacher did not do anything bout it. There was a lot of judgment during my 6 years of school
Very good teachers and staff, accommodating to all students. The teachers take the time to get to know their students inside and out,
I would like to see more technology make its way towards the school system. There are an abundance of schools that have old computers that don’t function properly. The school should provide students with laptops so that they have access to Internet and are not at a disadvantage compared to students who do
Some things I loved about prince William county schools was the diversity in the school. There were a lot of kids from different parts of the country that spoke different languages. The teachers were also really nice and caring.
I grew up here, and I had a lot of great teachers who genuinely care about how we’re doing, not just academically but mentally as well. The teachers really try to view you as a person and not another number.
I have had a good experience at Freedom High School. They are doing a really good job communicating during the pandemic.
Prince William County Schools allow students to feel welcome & ensure that their learning is top priority. I've attended various Prince William County Public Schools & within all of them, I have found teachers who care about their students well being and their safety as well. I am able to participate in multiple clubs & events to display how great of a school I attend. I feel strongly engaged in my community due to the resources I have been provided from different teachers&students. If I could change something about Prince William County Schools it would probably be their ability to prepare us for college. I am applying to schools currently and will be attending college next fall. If I was granted this scholarship, I would give back to my school & show students younger than me that I was once in their position, all it takes is hope&determination and soon they will also achieve any goals or plans they may have to attend college or prepare themselves for their future.
