U.S. News & World Report recently ranked Kingston Elementary and Old Donation School as the No. 1 elementary and middle schools in Virginia. Old Donation School, which has students in grades two through eight and is the home of the Edward E. Brickell Academy for Advanced Academics & Arts, was also ranked as the No. 2 elementary school in the state.
Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) is proud to serve the many military families who work and live in our community. Approximately 25 percent of the school division’s student population is comprised of active-duty, military-dependent youth, and VBCPS is committed to providing support, resources and enriching programs to enhance their educational experiences and support their families.
VBCPS is fortunate to partner with the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA), which has awarded the school division multiple grants to support social, emotional, STEM and special education initiatives. From parental deployments to the academic and social challenges that come with changing schools, VBCPS strives to ensure families have the best resources possible to assist students in reaching their full potential.
This webpage is designed to provide information to military families that are relocating to Virginia Beach and have questions about registration, school locations, academic programs, graduation requirements and calendars. It has links to additional resources and contact information for military school counselors who can provide additional assistance to relocating or current VBCPS military families.
