Virginia Run Schools. Virginia Run, Centreville, Fairfax County Virginia Schools

 

 

Welcome home to Virginia Run

  

 

John: I drove through the Virginia Run neighborhood several times on my last business trip to your area.

It was beautiful and had all the amenities that my family wants including being pretty close to my company in Fairfax.

 

 

 

 

 

It looks like I will be transferring to Fairfax County in the spring from North Carolina and Virginia Run is at the top of my list for places to live.

Could you post information about the schools that serve Virginia Run as well as Info on the Fairfax County School System?

 

 

 

 

Virginia Run Elementary

 

 

 Steve: Virginia Run is served by the following schools with links embedded:


Virginia Run Elementary

 

Ormond Stone Middle

 

Westfield High

 

 

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

Fairfax County school starts the day after Labor Day here and has for decades. This year that date is Sept. 7.

Virginia Run is located in Fairfax County Virginia, the 12th largest system in the US.

 

 

 

 

 

The websites and other resources available for evaluating your child's education options are extensive, thorough and extremely well done.

 

The schools in our county are considered among the best in the nation.

Here are some statistics that you might find encouraging from the Fairfax county website:

 

 

 

Fairfax County Produces Olympic Swimmers* The new four-year Virginia on-time graduation rate for Fairfax County was 91.2 percent for 2008 high school graduates.

* 92.6 percent of high school graduates continue on to some form of post secondary education.

 

 

 

 

* The dropout rate for school year 2007-08 was 1.5 percent.

 

 

Members of Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) class of 2009 posted a composite SAT score of 1664—the highest since the SAT went from two sections to three sections in 2006.

This  exceeds the average combined scores of 1522 in Virginia and 1511 in the nation.

In 2007-08, 63.1 percent of graduates earned advanced diplomas.

• The number of FCPS students taking Advanced Placement exams rose from 10,313 in 2002 to 14,365 in 2008.

 

 

 

 

 

Westfield High School

 

 

• In the June 2009 edition of Newsweek magazine, all eligible FCPS high schools were listed in the top five percent of public schools in the nation...

...based on the annual challenge index—which measures a school’s effort to challenge all students.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to Westfield High School

 

 

Fairfax has a great getting started page for those folks seeking registration information.

John: How can I make sure which schools serve a home I might consider buying? The boundaries are not that easy to figure out.



 

Virginia Run Elementary

 

Steve: John, you are absolutely right. In some areas the boundaries very difficult to figure out.

Go to Fairfax County's school boundary site and enter the address of the prospective property.

You will be given the elementary, middle and high school that currently serves that home.

 

 

 

 

 

Virginia Run Community Center

There is also a phone number for you to double check to see if any boundary changes are anticipated.

 

This is especially important if you want to buy within a particular elementary school boundary.

 

 

 

 

Fairfax County schools are divided into clusters, then subdivided into pyramids named for the high school that tops the pyramid.

 

 

 

 

For example, Westfield is in cluster 8 and serves Virginia Run neighborhood among others.

Click the link: Westfield pyramid is listed 3rd, after Oakton and South Lakes High Schools... beginning with the elementary schools up through Ormond Stone Middle school that feeds into the high school


(Always check the school boundary web site since many students with Herndon adresses fall within other high school boundaries. For example: the  Herndon 20171 zip code could attend Westfields, Chantilly or Oakton High schools depending on where the boundary line is)

 

 

 



Virginia Run Elementary PlaygroundDiane: Are there any independent school evaluation sites you know of?


Jan:
Here are three sites that our clients have found valuable.


Great Schools

School Digger

School Matters
