We are so grateful for the wonderful teachers at Mount Eagle. It's our second year at the school, and our son is excelling and loves going to school. As a parent, I love the small class sizes and all of the extra resources available for students. Great neighborhood school, and I feel that the ratings are way off. Mount Eagle Elementary should be rated a 10!

As a former teacher with Fairfax County Public Schools and early childhood educator, I can tell you our first grader has received nothing but the best from her experience at Mount Eagle Elementary. Even though the school is small, it delivers a developmentally appropriate education in a community based environment. Parents are encouraged to walk their child to class, giving families and teachers an opportunity to touch base every day. The teachers are clearly some of the best in the county and truly care about their students. Events like Principal's Pride, Literacy Nights, and Learning Celebrations help support student and family achievements at individual levels. Even though our school boundaries pull students from 4 small local neighborhoods, the student body is very diverse. The size of the school helps foster lasting relationships between students and families. The PTO at Mount Eagle gains strength every year and promotes community relationships with yearly events like BINGO, a school dance, and an international food night. We have been more than pleased with the education our daughter has received and look forward to sending our younger children to Mount Eagle as well.

I had a student at Mount Eagle for her 1st and 2nd grades. It was a wonderful experience. She was targeted as an Advanced Academic Student and received all of the extra attention she needed. In 2nd grade, she was in a special AAP joint 2/3 class. It was amazing and when she moved over to the AAP center , she was well-prepared. It is a friendly, community-minded school. The library is excellent. The teachers are responsive to individual needs.

horrible. this year my 2nd grader has learned (from student body) about sex, foul language, and been bullied. the SACC program for this school is equally bad. if i could afford it we would either move or go to private school. we are stuck and i am desperate to get out of this school.

We are parents of a kindergartener and have loved our experience so far. The kindergarten teachers have been great and we've enjoyed the sense of community in our little school. The PTO is very active and the staff has been friendly and responsive.

What a great school! I have been so impressed with the faculty and teachers and students at this school. The teachers do a phenomenal job at getting the students engaged and excited to learn. My son absolutely can't wait to go to school everyday! He has made so much progress this year and is really excelling. With the help of a dedicated PTO, my sons class has also had the opportunity to go on some wonderful field trips and great learning experiences. We are looking forward to the rest of our time there!

My son's kindergarten teachers are absolutely wonderful! They encourage parent involvement and are very nurturing, understanding and supportive. My son loves going to school here and is really thriving. I would also add that I find the staff at the school to be very responsive and helpful.

Great school! The kids get lots of one on one interaction with teachers because of small class sizes. The PTO and the parents seem pretty involved. Lots of additional resources available for the children. We've been enjoying our experience at Mt.Eagle!

Mount Eagle is a great school. I am the parent of a kindergartener enrolled here. The staff is great and the communication between the administrators and parents is excellent. The school has numerous functions and the most of the time the parents are in attendance at these events. My child is excelling in this school and I look forward to many more years to come.
