This is a brand new school with excellent infrastructure and outstanding professionals. I'm very happy having Mason Crest Elementary in the heart of Annandale, VA. Keep up with the good work!


Posted January 19, 2014

This school in only two years of existence is making a name for itself. It is one of the best schools in the area and having traveled extensively with my family I would say in the country! The teachers are fabulous! They take the team approach to helping all students. The PTO is welcoming and actively seeks support for the school. The office staff is as friendly as they come. They make you want to work there! It is a friendly and welcoming place and my older daughter who did not have the pleasure of attending Mason Crest says it is like Disney World for learning! To give this school a 5 would be a disservice! The Administrators Mrs. Kerr and Mr. Butler are extremely visable and are very willing to share their vision of Mason Crest and how it functions as what the call a professional learning community. We had friends move from private school to come here. Amazing Atmosphere to learn and thrive!

Absolutely the best. Brian Butler is a wonderful principal who is engaged and really cares about his students. He gave us a personal tour because we moved to the area just before the school year started. He knew the names of all the students we passed in hallways and classrooms. Front office is very helpful and friendly. Communication between teachers and parents works well. Our child loves to go to school every day. Needless to say, the school is brand new and thus they have the newest technology, great gym and library, as well as art, computer, and music rooms. So glad that our child can go to this great school.

Where do I start? The Administrators are simply the best! They know the students and call them by name, they care about and support the students outside of school, they expect excellence in their teachers, they support the PTO 100%, they support and address parents concerns in a timely manner, anti bullying atmosphere so all students feel safe and I can go on and on and on about how great they are. The teachers are much of the same, fantastic! The PTO is like no other; you'll want to get and be involved! This is where you want your children to go! GO MASON CREST TIGERS :)

Mason Crest is absolutely wonderful, not only in terms of strong academics, but also excellent teacher involvement, support and leadership of the outstanding Principal and Vice Principal, and amazing after school student and family events that celebrate learning and inspire a strong sense of community. Mason Crest is truly an awesome school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
