- Fairfax County Public Schools, VA
Senior: South County Middle School is made up of diverse student body. I like to think of it as a UN school - multiracial & multiethnic.
It is a relatively young school so that it is very modern and with latest technology available. The school offers various levels of academic curriculum and wide range of electives such as photography, band, theater, creative writing, etc.
Teachers & administrators are excellent. They encourage students to challenge themselves academically and are willing to assist by staying after school to provide tutoring.
I cannot think of anything that I would change about the school.

Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
