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.
In partnership with home and community, the mission of Princess Anne Middle School is to develop students as scholars who are curious, creative, and critical thinkers, leaders who are empathetic, collaborative and effective communicators, and citizens who are civic-minded, socially responsible, and ethical contributors to a global society.
Princess Anne Middle School serves a student population that represents the varied interests of our city. The farming community, military dependents, Sandbridge residents, and a multitude of hard working families are residents of the new boundaries for Princess Anne Middle. The school serves students who attended Creeds, Christopher Farms, North Landing (Blackwater), Princess Anne, Red Mill, and Strawbridge Elementary Schools.
