Roanoke County Public Schools Reviews

Going to high school in the county was great, with lots of good classes to choose from and lots of support in preparing for college. The teachers were all knowledgeable, but I was personally drawn toward the ones who taught in a more kinesthetic way because I'm a more hand-on learner. The biggest thing I would want to change is actually happening, right after I graduate, and that it a renovation to the old, falling apart building; yay!

Teachers are passionate about helping us students excel! No matter how rough of a background a student may come from, teachers, administration, and staff would do anything for students.
I love how the schools all have a sense of family. Everyone is very kind to everyone else, from teachers, parents, students and staff. I think the quality of education that I receive is very good. All of the teacher and staff are very helpful, and they always want you to do your best. The one thing I would improve about RCPS is the school lunches. I think that they are unhealthy and they definitely do not taste good. This is unfair for the kids that depend on the school for their main daily meals, and they don't get the quality nutrition and good tasting food that they deserve. I may also improve our sports playing field conditions, and the number of clubs that are at the school.
