Godwin High School
Henrico County Public Schools has launched an app of its HCPSLink academic web portal for parents and students – and the new iPhone software was created by a student.
The new mobile app provides students in grades 6-12 and their parents “a quick, easy, lightweight way to stay connected with student grades and assignments,” said HCPS Director of Technology Pete Taylor. “It’s easy to use and aesthetically pleasing.” The app is free, and available at the Apple App Store by searching “HCPS.”

Students at Godwin High School recently learned how the law applies to them and how it forms the basis of behavior within a society, through an interactive experience called the Rule of Law, presented Oct. 10 by the Henrico County Bar Association.

Newsweek magazine recently named Deep Run High School and Mills E. Godwin High School among America’s Best High Schools.
According to its website, to compile the 2012 list of the top high schools in America, Newsweek reached out to principals, superintendents and other administrators at public high schools across the country. In order to be considered for the list, a school had to complete a survey requesting specific data from the 2010-2011 academic year. In all, more than 2,300 schools were assessed to produce the final list of the top 1,000 schools.
