i like this school but i think they could use better equipment and make it easier for the kids to learn in the way they think

The school is under renovation and we are excited about the improvements and added space for the kids. The new administration appears to care a lot about the students and are present at most of the PTA sponsored events. All of the teachers we have dealt with are dedicated seek to create a positive learning environment for the students. We love that the school seems to be mostly made up of down to earth, "normal" families, as opposed to the competitive culture you will find at many other schools in Fairfax County.

The school has a lot to improve on. When visiting the front office, many of the staff act like you're bothering them and they have better things to do. This carries over into phone calls to the school as well. The counselor I have dealt with does not impress me at all. She is unresponsive, unorganized, and non-compliant with Virginia law requirements when dealing with the my child's needs. The teachers are a hit or miss. I have worked with teachers at the school who have a genuine interest in teaching my child. But I have also dealt with a few teachers who don't. They focus more on the students who are academically proficient and neglect those who are struggling. They can have a very condescending tone as well. And one teacher tried to guilt-trip me by making it seem like she did my child and I a favor when all she really was doing was her job. I consistently ask my child how school was, what difficulties were encountered in class, how we should work to improve, etc. So I was taken aback when one day my child told me that help was needed for a task that was assigned to the class. When my child had asked for help the teacher told my child she was too busy and was helping someone else. My child had asked on a few occasions with little results from the teacher. When my child told me this, I had to internalize my anger. Instead I pulled out the iPad and helped search for ways to help with this set back. All it took me was 5 minutes to pull up the right website to help explain what type of exercises they were doing in class for my child successfully accomplish what the teacher failed to take the time in class to do. I am all for supporting my child and helping with assignments at home. But if a teacher can't take the time to explain something so simple like she is supposed to, then she as well as the other few teachers are hurting the students. She left my child feeling that he was not worth the effort because she would rather help another kid who already grasped the concept she was teaching. I was contemplating moving into a new school district but I like our neighborhood and I have some hope that the school can improve. Especially with the new principal to lead them in the right direction.

If your child is an average or an above average kid, you will love this school. 2 of my children are and they had a great experience with great teachers! My 3rd child had problems and the obvious thing to do with him was to constantly send him to the office and call me and make us feel like a horrible parent and put bandaids on the problem. After we moved recently we found out thru comprehensive testing at his new school, that red flags were obvious (hello!) and that he was actually autism spectrum. He could have received services thru the best county in the nation, but instead, we had to find out from a whole other school that actually he needed help and services, instead of possible suspensions and harshness. The office staff is great to those they like. If we move back, I will avoid this school!

The teachers really care. Besides great effort in teaching, they care to be good people. My son's 2nd grade teacher came to his championship football game to cheer him on. Sadly, a friend of mine passed away recently. The teacher of the deceased's niece came to the celebration of life to support her student. My older son went to the school years ago. When he visits during a function and sees his old teachers, he always thanks them for being awesome. I ve seen tears of joy in their eyes when they see him. He is now an honor roll student at South County Middle School. Newington Forest Elementary School has been fantastic for my sons!
