This is our first experience with the elementary school system and so far Lane has been absolutely top notch!! Our Kindergartener has grown leaps and bounds both academically and in maturity in just the last two months!! He has a wonderful, enthusiastic teacher and assistant teacher. Socially the school has a very well run PTA and the Principal is very involved. We are thrilled with the school and look forward to more years to follow in the school!
Lane is one of the best elementary schools around. The teachers care and are out to teach the kids about life not just SOL tests. The PTA is highly active and supports the students, teachers and families.
The community at Lane is very engaged - the teachers, administrators and parents are all involved in the successful education of our children. It's a very positive atmosphere and the children benefit from the involvement of so many different people from different backgrounds. The children also get to benefit from a variety of specials throughout the week - library, computer lab, music, PE, art - as well as a variety of extracurricular activities the PTA sponsors. Our experience at Lane has been very positive! And, the SACC program there is also great!
I have a third grader and a Kindergarten student at Anthony T Lane Elementary. I am in my 4th year at Lane and absolutely love the school. We have a fabulous Principal who is a parent as well which keeps her balanced between the parents and the administration. Our Assistant Principals also bring fabulous leadership to our school. We have fabulous PTA run after school programs and an unbelievable curriculum as well. Our Art and Music programs keep our kids well rounded. Our PTA is fantastic and family oriented. I feel lucky that we are in the Lane district lines and feel my kids are blossoming because of the education they are receiving.
This school has been great for my two kids. Positive experience thus far with teachers and PTA.
I really like Lane and have positive interactions with teachers and administrators. PTA has helped the school tremendously with needed projects and materials.
The staff and the administration at this school are top notch. The demographic mix of students and the multicultural exposure my son receives at Lane is an added bonus for my son. In addition, the PTA is very involved with the school and raises slot of money to assist the school in getting items on teachers wish lists.
Lane is a fantastic learning environment for our son. We have had a wonderful experience with the teaching staff and the administration is very supportive and willing to work with parents on concerns as they arise. I wish that more parents were actively involved in school events, but those who are involved do a fantastic job!
My kids have attended Lane for 3 years. The teachers are all wonderful. The PTA is very strong and involved with this school, constantly helping the school with various projects and funding events.
My son entered Kindergarten this year at Lane and so far it has been a positive experience. They have a very active PTA and the principal and assistant principals seem to be very involved with all aspects of the school and are very approachable.
Great staff and faculty; outstanding curriculum and after school programs; one of the best schools in Fairfax County.
Lane has an incredibly diverse population of students, coming from countries all over the world. This diversity is used as an advantage by the teachers who emphasize collaboration and caring. Furthermore, students learn about responsibility to their community through integration of special needs students in the classrooms, attention to the environment, and pride in their school property. Principal Contreras is engaged in long-term planning to improve the school property through installation of art and raised gardens, which will be used in teaching projects. Parents are heavily involved in the PTA, raising thousands of dollars each year and providing opportunities for professional development of teachers, purchases of technology, and extra-curricular activities of students.
I have two children at Lane - 2nd grade and Kindergarten - and we love it! My son is in the multiage program which is amazing. I believe Lane may be one of the few schools in the area that has this multiage program avaialble. Our principal is in her second year at Lane and is terrific. The PTA is very engaged and has been able to provide wonderful enhancements to our school over the last few years.
My kids love going to school at Lane. The teachers are great and the school office staff has always been very helpful.
My son attended Lane for Kindergarden (we moved because of a work transfer to southern VA). I can't say enough about the positive experiences he had with the teachers, staff, and other parents. His teacher, Mrs. Ableman, provided a caring, yet structured, environment which helped him blossom into a focused, enthusiastic learner. The PTA supported many after school sports and activities. We love our new school, but we miss the Lane community.
I have two sons that attend Lane Elementary and we are extremely happy with this school. The teachers are amazing, they really care about the students academic growth and overall learning experience. From our experience at Lane, the teachers are very well versed, poised, and have a great attitute. Having a positive teacher makes all the difference to your child! The adminstrators and counselors are extremely communicative with parents if there are any issues that need to be dealt with. They also take great attention and consideration to place your child with a teacher that they feel is the best fit. Overall, a very awesome school.
I am a parent at Lane Elementary and my daughter was in the kindergarten class last year (Ms. Schadle's class). She has such a great positive experience, the teacher is very engaging, full of energy, she loved her school. I am very grateful because it is such a difference in the morning if your child is actually looking forward to go to school! I have also talked to other parents and they all have similar experience. So great job Lane K-teachers and keep it up! I
Lane Elementary is definitely a GREAT school........... The teachers and administrators make LANE a wonderful place to learn as students and grow as individuals. COMMUNICATE, COLLABORATE AND CARE is the school motto and the school definitely stands behind it.
Great communication and strong academic curriculum! The school is very diverse which is great for kids to learn about different cultures. The PTA is very active and great!
Love this school! The teachers are fantastic, and the PTA is dedicated to giving back to the teachers and classrooms. The lunch menu gives healthy choices and allows the kids and opprotunity to chose their own meal. The teachers work hard at diversifying learning so that all children are engaged and challenged.
