From early childhood through high school, Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) offers students many programs to acquire skills and knowledge that support their academic achievement.
The VBCPS is the largest school division in Hampton Roads and the 50th largest in the nation. Focusing on educational rigor and expanded academic choices, the goal of the Virginia Beach City Public School system is to prepare all students to be successful as workers, citizens, and lifelong learners.
For three consecutive years, VBCPS has earned full state Standards of Learning (SOL) accreditation. In addition, the VBCPS Class of 2020 outperformed the region and achieved the division's highest cohort-based on-time graduation rate and lowest dropout rate.
In a challenging and rapidly changing global economy, the Virginia Beach City Public School system's goal is to prepare all students to be successful as workers, citizens, and lifelong learners.
VBCPS also continues to thrive in the arts. For the 14th consecutive year, VBCPS was named one of the Best Communities for Music Education by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education. Less than 5% of school districts across the nation earn this prestigious award. Source VBCPS, 2023
