Description

Westmoreland County Schools is a small, rural school division serving approximately 2,000 students. We have two elementary, one middle and one high school. Our students also may attend the Northern Neck Regional Technical Center and the Chesapeake Bay Governor's School for Marine and Environmental Science. Westmoreland County is located on the shores of the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers in the beautiful "Northern Neck" of Virginia. We are approximately one and a half hours northeast of Richmond, one hour southeast of Fredericksburg, and two hours south of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. This historical waterfront county is the birthplace of George Washington, James Monroe and the home of the historic Lee family. We are also home to the Westmoreland County State Park. Westmoreland County offers numerous outdoor recreational activities including swimming, hiking, boating, fishing, camping and golfing. The county offers excellent public support for education and boasts of exceptional civic pride in good schools, government, churches and community services. Dining is delightful in the many seafood restaurants.
