Matoaca high school is an amazing school like many others in Chesterfield County. Through academics, college readiness, teachers and sports rallies I have definitely been able to have the high school experience and still maintain excellent grades! While many of the administration staff members are not well suited for our school, our principal is an amazing fit and very active within the student body. Matoaca is almost as one big family and truly the place to go!

I love the school spirit at Matoaca. If I had to turn around and redo my four years, I definitely would. I enjoyed everything about the school. The teachers really seemed to care about you, the students are friendly, and the school rivalries are taken very seriously. I loved my school, no doubt!
