Parent: Our son has been going to WCDS since preschool and, as an eight grader, he is mature, kind, well spoken, and conscientious about getting his homework and studying done. As his parents, we'd like to take the credit, but we're quite certain WCDS has had a great influence on his character. We're so fortunate to have such a high quality education nearby!
A funny story: Kindergartners at WCDS traditionally do a play on stage where they each hold up a planet in our solar system (that they've drawn by hand) and recite a poem about their planet. One year, the kid who was supposed to be Jupiter was absent, so an 11th grader who had been Jupiter when he was in kindergarten volunteered to sub in. It was quite a site to see this one 6-foot tall student standing in a row with these tiny kids holding up his planet and reciting his poem from memory! We've always witnessed this sort of supportive environment where the older kids help the younger ones and no one is "too cool" to show compassion.

Senior: Rappahannock County High School is rather unique in that it has only around 300 students(including 8th grade as the county has no public middle school) and is surrounded by gorgeous country side, woods, and mountains. The community here is quite tight, with none being left out or alienated as even if cultural and racial diversity isn't prominent, ideal and social diversity is huge. There is a group for everyone. Thanks to the majority of teachers being prevalent with small classes there is a good class environment. As far as academics, its 50/50.
There are much fewer opportunities for advanced classes here than at most schools and most AP and DE classes must be taken online. Another thing to mention is some incompetency with the administration, as a result of lack of enforcement to do more than the minimal as well as messy scheduling and lack of communication at times.
Nonetheless, I am proud to be a senior at this high school, but am also glad that I will be leaving soon.
