MLWGS is a great example of a melting pot of culture, knowledge, and opportunities. Some minorities are underrepresented at a school for international studies, however there seems to be effort for growth. Maggie Walker could be an experience of a lifetime.
Review Maggie Walker Governor's School
Depending on the teachers, this school can be extremely challenging and requires time-management and efficiency to succeed in its complex program. The workload is far from busy work, requiring a lot of time and effort, which is often extremely difficult for incoming students to handle.
I love Maggie Walker. The people there have been amazing and have become family over the last 4 years. This school is not for the feint of heart and people who apply need to be aware of that. They will no longer be the best student because you will be surrounded by the best students from schools all across central Virginia. Another thing people have to prepare for is the amount of time you will dedicate to this school. There will be a lot of all-nighters and working constantly over the weekends. However, in the end I believed this all has been worth it. You will never be in another place where the best and brightest minds are all together and get along surprisingly well. The total classes are small, so when we get together for things like Spirit Week, there is a feeling of family that permeates through the school.
