Virginia Beach City Public Schools Reviews
Virginia Beach City Public Schools is helping me achieve my goal to "be the change I wish to see in this world". It's the largest school system in the commonwealth of Virginia with approximately 70,000 students, and a grand total of 90 schools. Even with so many students and staff, the school system has met the needs of many, and values every voice in the city, from students to parents to faculty and staff. Also, in these tough times, the school system is feeding the students who don't have food. Another great thing about it is that the fact that they have magnet programs called Academy's. As a rising freshman, you can apply to a program of your interest with programs related to it (health sciences, legal studies, IB, STEM, etc). These programs help ready students for higher studies. In addition, the schools issue one Chromebook for each student in their middle and high schools, promoting online learning. VBCPS is rich in all things school related, making it the best in the state!
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!
I have been a student at Virginia Beach City Public Schools since first grade. Many, if not all, of my teachers have been excellent mentors and have gotten me to where I am today. My teachers, especially in high school, have been quite understanding and often encouraging. Being able to have Chromebooks has also been really beneficial. It has helped me to stay organized and it has sharpened my skills. Overall, I am satisfied with my educational experience through Virginia Beach City Public Schools.
