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!

Admin here are amazing! Always willing to work with you regardless of the problem! Northside High School especially! Mr. Mckee is by far the most involved in day to day operations. Has a connection with each and every student he encounters everyday! The staff is very profesional and are always smiling! I am so thankful to work amongst the best! I was a student and alum as well as working part time!
I like Roanoke County schools it’s a very good school system and they have great teachers, offer good courses, and try their best to have good college prep for juniors and seniors. The offer many courses that some of the other school systems do not offer and it’s very beneficial for students who are pursuing careers in certain fields because it prepares them for college and the course they may take then. They could make more changes for the well being of all the students and not just for basketball and football. T
