    We recently moved from Texas to Petersburg and am amazed at the quality of the local schools. My kids are solid performers in school and in fact my daughter spent several years in a highly competitive private school in Texas. Here in Petersburg she is in Public School and the High School is at the same level as her highly touted private school in Texas. Light years ahead of the public school system in Texas.
