Welcome to Chesterfield County Public Schools!
Thank you for choosing or considering our nationally recognized school division to meet your child’s educational needs.
As one of the 70 largest school divisions in the United States, we’re often looked at as a leader in public education. It’s our goal to prepare students for success after high school. We’re doing just that by creating:
Chesterfield County Public Schools’ on-time graduation rate is an impressive 91 percent, and our students’ performance on state-mandated assessments routinely surpasses Virginia averages.
But statistics and tests don’t define our students or the levels of success that they are achieving. We have students
These aren’t the same types of elementary, middle and high schools that you and I attended. They can’t be; otherwise, our students will be left behind in the race to succeed. Our forward-thinking planning and our engaging teaching-and-learning process are preparing our students for a world we may not even be able to imagine.
Moving forward, we’ll continue to prepare our students for a rapidly changing world by focusing on innovation and critical thinking. We’ll also strengthen home-to-school partnerships through effective communication and continue to create partnerships that support student and family engagement. And finally, we’ll operate in a transparent manner that demonstrates an understanding that we serve a community of 340,000 residents who all can benefit from a strong public school system.
There’s a role for everyone to play in Chesterfield County Public Schools. Please join us!
