Stafford County Public Schools Reviews

I like that Stafford Country is striving for excellence by improving the older schools. The new Stafford High School functions and looks so much better! I have also noticed that Brooke Point is currently undergoing renovations to improve the student per classroom ratio, which I believe is much needed. I have attended both Stafford High School and Brooke Point High School so I gotten to see how each school individually addresses bullying, student involvement, and extra circular activities. I believe many high school students fear lunch because it is when the separation by popularity and ethnicity is sometimes so apparent. Lunch should and can be a great relaxing and fulfilling part of a students day and I believe Stafford County can achieve that with more effort put in by both the administration and student body.

I love most of the teachers there, they have helped me a lot by writing college recommendations and they actually care about my future outside of Stafford. The math and the CTE teachers are the best! However I think that there should be more science teachers, especially in the physics department.The new Stafford High School has many great facilities that sports teams and clubs take advantage of. There is wide diversity of students of different races, ethnicities, and religions as well.
I have been attending SCPS ever since I started Kindergarten in 2005. As a child I was in love with school and never wanted to leave! I had great experiences at Hartwood, Grafton Village, and Dixon Smith. However, Gayle Middle School offered little bullying help and the policies at Stafford Senior High School are ridiculous. Students are kept on a leash and everyone is punished for others' actions. Also, I am not too impressed with how the county is spending tax money on the schools since ours still isn't completely finished after 3 years of construction. That is why I did not give the county a 5 star rating.
