Virginia Schools In The Early 1900s May Shock You. They’re So Different.

Virginia has long been known for excellent schools. From top-ranked public school systems to prestigious colleges and universities, Virginia schools enjoy a strong reputation around the country. Considering that we have the second oldest college in the nation at William and Mary and the first public school, founded in Hampton in 1634, it’s easy to say that education has always been a priority in Virginia. Looking back at some of these school houses and classrooms from the past, we can be reminded of just how our schools have evolved.
