Public Schools

Henrico County Public Schools are among the best in the nation. Henrico was first in the state two years in a row for schools passing the Standards of Learning tests (SOLs). Nine Henrico schools-the most in Virginia-have been recognized since the Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence program began in 1982. Henrico has received ten National Association of Counties awards.


Henrico County keeps abreast of technology. It has made the largest order of computers to-date by a school district with 23,000 Dell laptops. This order will be enough for every teacher and student in middle and high school.

Major technology initiatives already in place in Henrico County include Satellite reception capability in each school, Institutional Cable Television Network and television distribution systems in each school, Library Automation Initiative Implementation, and more.

Henrico County Public Schools’ mission is to provide a nationally recognized educational program and staff to help 21st century students reach their full potential. They strive to develop critical thinkers and lifelong learners who are committed to their community and nation, and who have the personal integrity to meet life’s challenges.
