Poquoson City Public Schools


The Poquoson School Division anticipates a September 2009 enrollment of 2410 students, and like the city itself, is experiencing continuous growth. Each school within the system is accredited by the state of Virginia and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, a regional accrediting agency. The regular instructional program is complemented by special education for students with disabilities, talented and gifted programs, and vocational offerings on the middle and high school levels. A primary school houses grades K through 2, grades 3 through 5 comprise the elementary school, grades 6 through 8 comprise the middle school and Poquoson High School serves grades 9 through 12. This organizational pattern precludes the need for attendance zoning and contributes greatly to the pride and interest Poquoson residents take in their schools.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Poquoson City Public Schools, the heart of a unique coastal community on the historic Virginia Peninsula with a tradition of excellence in education, is to prepare all students to develop their full potential to succeed in an ever-changing global society, through a sustained commitment to education in a respectful, safe and caring environment.
