Senior: I have been enrolled in and have attended Fairfax County Public Schools for my whole life, I'm a rising senior. Moving to four different areas in my lifetime, all within Fairfax County , I have gotten to see how many different schools within the county operate. At all schools I have been pleased by the County and grateful that I am able to attend schools that are apart of it. FCPS gives you opportunities to really grow and learn so much while forming meaningful connections with teachers, staff, and peers. I have always felt safe and welcomed by the staff in all of the Fairfax County schools I have attended or visited. All schools are so diverse and offer a ton of programs, clubs, extracurriculars, and more opportunities to fit the interests and allow their students to be involved! It's an amazing school district and I am very fortunate to have grown up and received an education from within it.

Sophomore: The 2020 goal was ¨Equity for all¨ which the district did well in. There were food, technology, health(both mental & physical) resources offered to ALL students and the families of students.
The ACPS 2025 goal is ¨Empowering all students to thrive in a diverse and ever-changing world¨They set this goal this year, with all the progressive movements coming to light. I feel the district (being made up of extremely diverse populations whether it is ethnically, racially, socio-economically, religiously, etc.) I feel that the district will be able to reach this goal of empowering all students. I already see ways that they are doing so. They have given students a chance to rename schools that were named after pro-segregationists, given less represented students more college readiness resources, and take advice from STUDENTS, not only parents on what steps need to be taken to better our school system.
I rate a 4/5, because like everything in the world, we arent perfect.
