Patrick County Public Schools educated over 2600 students during the 2012-2013 school year. Our children are served in four elementary schools with grades K-7, one primary school with grades K-3, one upper elementary school with grades 4-7 and one high school with grades 8-12.
Of these schools, all have been fully accredited by the state board of education, meeting or exceeding state expectations for public schools. The school division and four of these schools were awarded an Award of Excellence from the Virginia Board of Education for achieving a high level of excellence. In addition, schools in Patrick County were recognized for having achieved or exceeding the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act. Only 23 out of 132 school divisions had all schools achieving this level with Patrick County School Division being one of 18 in the state to have earned this recognition.
The school board prides itself on the fact that there is tremendous community support for schools and staff.
