Virginia Beach City Public Schools Reviews

I moved to Virginia Beach in July of 2016 after living in San Antonio Texas for nine years. When school started, I was extremely nervous about fitting in and making new friends. However, the staff of Virginia Beach City Public Schools were welcoming and helped me acclimate to the new environment. The students are some of the brightest and most charismatic individuals I've had the pleasure of meeting, so making friends and feeling welcome no longer were concerns. My only complaint of Virginia Beach City Public Schools is the communication between staff, students, and parents. In my experience, dates, fees, and other announcements that are important have not been effectively communicated to students and their families. Despite that, this school system is wonderful, and I'm sad to leave it behind to go off to college!

My children have been in the Virginia Beach School system throughout their entire education, have had a good experience thus far, just sent 1st born to JMU this week , and have a rising junior in high school as well. Have had a positive experience thus far, academically and personally, and athletically. Would recommend to all!
Virginia Beach City Public Schools is a fantastic school system. Academics are above average and they have mostly new facilities. The only shortcoming in my personal experience is the lack of diversity most likely due to the general population of Virginia Beach. I personally have had great experiences with that teachers in the Virginia Beach Public School System. They really connect with the students and seem to care about our future. Another popular complaint is the quality of the food served in the cafeteria, but I never expected much of it. After all, who is ever happy with school lunch? It is a safe school system as well. I have never felt endangered while on school grounds and would agree that the schools in the system are safe and secure.
