Roanoke City Public Schools is an urban school division in Roanoke, Virginia, serving a pre-K through 12th grade population of approximately 14,000 students among 17 elementary schools, 5 middle schools, 2 high schools, and 4 alternative schools. 

A 2021 survey reported the national household average for school supply spending is $848.90. Many students that go to school without their needed supplies obtain them from their peers and/or teachers. This school year, we want to share school supply love with our Roanoke City students and faculty. We need your help!
Donate 5 school supplies by visiting our storefront location - Please place them in our Back to School Bin - and  earn a $5 Southwest Native gift card to use in-store or online! It's THAT easy! For convenience, we have listed school supply items below that would be a big help this school year!
