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!
Overall, I like VBCPS, but sometimes they like to overwork us and I feel as if they like to push us harder than other school districts. I like the academy system that they have in place because it allows students at an early age to see whether or no they want to do this later in life. I also like our current schedule in which we start at 7:20 and get out at 2:10, however, they will be getting rid of this next year but I'm graduating so it doesn't really matter to me. I also think VBCPS made a great decision with the way the sport divisions are set up in which they're no longer grouping by district but by how good actual teams are and having higher and lower divisions so one team doesn't get completely get crushed by the other teams every single game.
