Two Virginia Beach schools Win National PTA Award

Two Virginia Beach schools are being listed as among the best nationwide when it comes to the PTA. Woodstock Elementary and Princess Anne Middle School are two of 173 schools to earn the National PTA School of Excellence designation.

According to the National PTA, the School of Excellence recognition program supports and celebrates partnerships between PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being for all students.

In order for a school to receive this designation, a survey series must find that school families either report a high level of family engagement at the school or that the PTA has made substantive, positive improvement in families’ perceptions since the beginning of the school year.

Since the recognition program was created in 2014, more than 460 schools have been awarded the designation.
