Welcome to King & Queen County Public Schools and to the 2018-2019 school year! We are excited about the many new opportunities ahead embracing continued student achievement. King & Queen County is approximately 40 miles northeast of Richmond along the route 360 highway. King & Queen County is known as the "shoestring" county extending approximately 70 miles long and 10 miles wide. It is a short drive to the towns of West Point, Gloucester, and Tappahannock. The main industry is agriculture and logging. The school division consists of 660 students housed within three schools, one high school grades 8-12 (Central High School) and two elementary PK-7 (King & Queen Elementary and Lawson-Marriott Elementary School). I hope you will take time to browse our school division's website and visit the links to each of our schools.
The School Board is committed to advancing the educational opportunities for all students. The teams of teachers, principals, and staff members are dedicated to helping every child to be successful. This is a very exciting time for our school division as we embark on many new academic projects to lead our school to new heights and to prepare our students success in the 21 Century. All schools have achieved state accreditation and we are FULLY ACCREDITED. We continue to retain highly qualified teachers and strive to achieve all benchmarks in order to meet federal requirements. I personally believe that all students can learn at diverse rates in their own individual learning styles. A quality education is a continuous investment for the taxpayers of King & Queen County, and like any investment, it must continue to develop and grow. Today's children are tomorrow's future and it is our goal to provide them with skills for their future accomplishments.
The King and Queen County Public Schools community invites parents, citizens, businesses, and local leaders to join us as partners in our journey to excellence. We invite all community members to not only invest in our children and schools, but to also become a part of the investment. I encourage you to contact our schools to volunteer and to participate in our activities.
With your support, we can maximize our ability to educate each and every child to her or his fullest potential. All of us working together can build a strong and bright future for King and Queen County and our students.
One Team, One Mission!
