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!

Virginia Beach public schools have given me the best school experience thus far. I currently go to Tallwood high school in Virginia Beach. They have these "academies" incorporated in a bunch of the high schools in the area that students can apply to for, they give students so much experience outside of the standard high school experience. Tallwood is known as the world language academy, there are a bunch of languages you can take and frequent exchange student opportunities, as well as trips to different countries if you would like. My friend in the academy has already been to china and a lot of Europe through the school! Not only are there different academies in the school, there is opportunities to take a specialized class outside of your homeschool! I'm currently taking a modeling and simulation class at the Advanced Technology Center, a branch off of the local community college TCC. There are so many great opportunities through Virginia Beach Public Schools!
I like that Virginia Beach Public Schools are so dedicated to their students learning. They have solely dedicated academy programs in multiple schools to help students get ahead with their intended profession. These programs are open to everyone and offer an amazing academic opportunity and that is why I like these programs because there are very few programs like it in the surrounding areas. One thing they could improve upon however is updating the school buildings, because some of the school buildings are around 50 years old and a better aesthetic environment would in my opinion help with productivity. Modern technology would also ensure student safety.
