Roanoke County Public Schools Reviews

Just recently graduated from Northside High School, and am overall very happy with the experience I had there. The academics and activities, during and after school, were always great and provides students with multiple different opportunities. By far the best thing about the school I attended was the teachers. Id say Northside has by far some of the best teachers in the nation. They are supportive, interactive, social, and will always do there best to help and support you. Due to my years at NMS and NHS Ive chosen to pursue teaching as well, and I greatly hope that once I finish my college career Id have an opportunity to teach there as well.

I have had an amazing experience at my school. The programs that Roanoke County offers students from academics, to volunteer services, to clubs, and to sports has been beneficial to many in preparing for the next steps in life. I have taken advantage of the dual enrollment college classes at a discount as well as participated in many volunteer services like the Little Feet Meet for Special Olympics.
Every school in Roanoke County is a tight-knit community. Everyone comes together often to cheer on sports teams or participate in school events. The one thing I would like to see changed is how bullying is handled. Many administrators do next to nothing, so problems continue.
