I have been at Hampton Roads Academy since I was four. The environment at Hampton Roads Academy is amazing. The teachers and staff are wonderful, and they are always willing to help and accommodate each students needs. The academics at the school are also spectacular. The smaller classes allow a student to feel comfortable in the classroom. This leads to students building relationships with their teachers and in turn teaches them how to ask for help and talk to adults. At Hampton Roads Academy I also took part in many activities. This allowed me to find like minded people and build a friend group. Another aspect of Hampton Roads Academy that allows for a trust and bond between the community is the Hampton Roads Academy honor code. The honor code upholds the students to be honest, respectful, and responsible in all aspects of their life. I personally feel like the honor code has helped shape the way I make decisions today. This is why I would recommend to any student.

I have been going to this school for a very long time now. The best part about my experience here is definitely the teachers. Almost every single one is extremely dedicated and passionate about their job and are always willing to help during outside time. In my opinion, the teachers really make the academics of the school, so the academics are also stellar. I have taken difficult classes and have never really struggled, mostly in part to the teachers. I am a music person myself, but this school is not for you if you like sports. This school is much more focused on academics over athletics, and people here just don’t really want to play sports. Overall, though, it is a very good school that makes you very ready for college. Most college workloads are actually easy to manage compared to the workload of this school.
Hampton Roads Academy is an excellent academic institution in which students from Pre-K to Grade 12 think, explore, and discover the world around them. Faculty and staff are always excited and willing to educate, and the learning environment is very welcoming. The only thing I would change about the school is athletics. I would like for the school's athletic department to improve in all sports. Aside from sports, the arts and technology departments are all amazing.
