Superintendent's Message


I would like to welcome you to Patrick County Schools.  I am greatly honored to serve as the School Superintendent and to work on reaching our mission - “…to educate all Patrick County children to prepare them for college or a career.”  Patrick County Public Schools is successful because of a dedicated faculty and staff aspiring to do what is best for students. It is my hope to further our mission and help each student reach his or her full potential.

Upon my employment with Patrick County as an assistant principal in 1999, I immediately noticed there was something inviting and unique about this school system. Staff and students work together to create an effective learning environment where everyone wants to be at school. Faculty and staff work in a collaborative spirit to educate and inspire the students entrusted to them.  Administrators research and implement effective research-based programs and teaching strategies.  Twenty plus years later, that same culture exists. Our school division continues to achieve many successes with these congenial relationships among students and all employees, and I am proud and honored to be part of this great team. It is with great anticipation that I look forward to all that we will achieve in the future.

Please take the time to explore and navigate the Patrick County Schools’ website.  You will find excellence and quality in the jobs we do every day…educating the future. 



Mr. C. Dean Gilbert
