The best high school in Virginia Beach hands down. This school is top notch. The neighborhoods it pulls from are nice expensive neighborhoods. It pulls from Little Neck, First Colonial Rd and near the Oceanfront. There is a good amount of military kids here but not as many as some other high schools because the houses are more expensive.
