Excellent Schools

School age children attend Matoaka Elementary, Hornsby Middle, and Jamestown High School - all highly ranked schools built within the last 20 years. Ranked #24 of Virginia high schools by U.S. News & World Report in 2016, Jamestown High School offers 19 Advanced Placement courses as well as a full slate of athletic, arts, and service activities.

Beyond high school, the College of William and Mary is a rich resource for Williamsburg residents. Consistently named a “public Ivy” at the undergraduate level, it also offers prestigious graduate programs in law, business, and education – some of which are tailored to working adults who want to advance in their current career or start a new one.

The College also hosts a vibrant lifelong learning program, the Christopher Wren Association. Each semester, approximately 1400 adults take courses on a wide range of topics taught by distinguished volunteers.

In sum, outstanding educational opportunities abound for residents of all ages!

The quality of the public schools that Governor’s Land children attend sealed the deal for us. We don’t feel the need to pay for a private school.
