Posted on 11/28/2019


Seventy-one schools in Prince William County have earned the 2019-20 School of Excellence distinction based on academic performance during the 2018-19 school year. The School of Excellence award is the highest honor bestowed by Prince William County Public Schools. Last year, 56 schools earned the award.


“I am very proud of the progress our schools are making, and I am excited to see the increase in the number of schools earning this designation,” said Superintendent Dr. Steve Walts. “Congratulations to our students, teachers, staff members, leadership team, and community for this improvement. We remain committed to continuous improvement for all students.”

A School of Excellence must be accredited and should demonstrate improvement in closing achievement gaps. School of Excellence criteria also include absenteeism, drop-out rate, wellness and overall climate satisfaction for parents and teachers.
