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!
