Surry is the Bomb! Surry schools are SOL certified, we offer dual college program to earn an associates while in high school, no gang issues(except wanna-bees), Schools buildings are in excellent shape....we've won state championships in football, basketball, track....what more can you ask for!!!
The academic programs of this school are drastically improving. They are now in the works for a program that allows students to obtain their associates degree while in high school. Upcoming freshman will be able to take dual enrollment classes that allow them to graduate with at least 50 college credits. This will be one of the only schools in Virgnia that has this program.
The quality of academic programs is questionable depending upon the persons delivering instruction. I also question the Inclusion program. Is it really Inclusion when students who are to be accompanied by an aide are not. Administration is not the best. I don't feel as though they support the students the way they should. The mentality still remains the same and has caused a decline in morale in both teachers and students. The entire school system needs a complete make-over consisting mainly of new administrators.
Surry County Schools are good...I am pleased with the quality of education that my child has received thus far. I have no complaints. Keep up the fantastic job faculty and staff of Surry County High School.
