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 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.
I enjoyed the variety of classes available to students in high school. It allowed me to tailor my course load to meet my needs and also challenge me, while looking good on college applications. I did not enjoy how the administration handled scandals that occurred at the schools and were shown on the news. Many employees tried to marginalize these incidents. The racist incidents that occurred at my school in particular, showed the overall feeling of Stafford County towards minorities, African Americans in particular.
