My educational experience at Phoebus High School has been exciting and very rewarding, along with preparing me for my journey to full my dreams of going to college. From my Principle, Assistant principles, teachers, coaches, other educational staff, and my classmates they have all been an encouragement in helping me fulfill my goals to complete my high school education. And it is because of this I understand what it means that it takes a village to raise a child, and to have a desire to give back to my community one day.

I went to Phoebus all four years of High School and my experience there wasn't always the best but there is a great support system in the faculty. The school had a great Culinary Arts program which I had the amazing opportunity of being apart of, the athletics program was amazing too. The Coaches were always on the players about their grades and didn't make it all about the sport they pushed the mentality of a " Student Athlete" which means they need to worry about their grades before the worry about the sport. But in all honesty Phoebus is a great school it had its ups and its downs just like anything in life.
We're not as encouraged to get an education for what we love to do as much as to pass a class, an SOL, and graduate. We are helped by our counselors to apply for college, grants, and scholarships. We've had 3 principles within 4 years. I have yet to go to a cheerleading competition though Phoebus High Cheer was a strong, skilled squad. As a school we had done well this year's first semester with our new principle as far as violence and handling conflict are concerned and have certain incentives for straight A students and honor roll students, which is great compared to last year in which honor roll was a large population of the school and the collective celebrations we were supposed to have did not usually end well. Violence is a reoccurring issue not only with us, but Virginia schools period it seems. The academy for Video Production was the best educational experience I have had at Phoebus. I learned a lot from it and got the opportunity to explain it to incoming freshman.
