Primary & Secondary Public Schools
Each locality in Greater Richmond has its own public school system and provides a full range of career prep, college prep, and honors/advanced placement classes. All four localities offer foreign language classes, in some cases starting at the elementary school level. French, German, Spanish, and Latin are the most frequently offered languages, but other languages also may be available, depending on the school system. All four school systems have International Baccalaureate programs, rigorous programs at the middle and high school levels that develop intercultural understanding and respect and lead to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities.
