Ashlawn is great! The teachers and aids are very smart and outstanding. The principal is a great person and very involved. The only thing is that the school speaks a lot about worldliness but they need to learn more about other cultures and perceptions I dont think this has excelled in the school. However in general it is a very good school with very involved parents!

One of the worst educational experiences for my son. Between the bullying and the focus on test scores as opposed to learning, the school administrators were unhelpful. According to the school principal, students in North Arlington have IQs in the superior range. Even if that were true, they certainly weren't attending Ashlawn.

Ashlawn is one of the best kept secrets in Arlington County. The principal is absolutely amazing. Her focus on inclusive instruction and literacy has taken our wonderful community school to a whole new level.

My daughter is attending the first grade in the Ashlawn, and I moved her here from a private school in North Carolina. I am impressed by the quality of the teachers and the curriculum, excellent language and social programs, as well as a strong focus on reading. The library is outstanding and the encouragement to read and the help the kids receive as they develop into strong, self-motivated readers deserves the highest praise. The social environment and interactions with the teachers and peers appear to be excellent and healthy, and my daughter has very much enjoyed her first year at the Ashlawn.

Ashlawn, Great school with great community feel. After school enrichment is great, helps kids learn skills which might have been hard to learn because of time constraint for the parents. It provides enriching experience for all involved.

Ashlawn benefits from a student population that is small but diverse. An active PTA exemplifies the strong commitment of families, staff, and neighbors to make Ashlawn an enriching experience for all involved.

What a gem of a school! Our daughter just completed fourth grade at Ashlawn. It has been her first school experience in the U.S., as we lived in Asia for many years and she attended a private international school there. We have been most impressed with Ashlawn. Mr. Miranda, the principal knows all the children--and most parents-- by name and he has such a great relationship with the students, staff and parents. Our daughter's teachers have been outstanding, and always stretch the kids in their learning. They use a lot of creativity, variety and innovation in the projects they assign, and encourage the students to do the same in their work. Our daughter has had a very positive experience at Ashlawn and is proud of her school. We all look forward to her fifth grade year!

This school has everything! It has great teachers, great administrators, great families and a world class curriculum that is reflected in the great schools profiles. Anyone who is lucky enough to live in the Spy Hill area can rest assured that their children will receive the best of all worlds both at Ashlawn and in the community.

Ashlawn is a hidden gem. Small, great teaching staff, and a focus on community inside and outside the walls of Ashlawn. Children get the best academic instruction while learning to engage and socialize in a safe loving environment.

We moved here from out of state. I have nothing, but great things to say about Ashlawn. The teachers are and have been very patient and outstanding. My son has had Mrs. Regeir for 2nd and Mrs. Musto for 3rd. They are 'Sincere and Dedicated' to their profession. Mrs. Bailey in 3rd is also outstanding. They seriously care about the kids and how they do. Ashlawn is a great school!!! I would recommend this school. The principal is also a plus, he knows all the students names and parents!! He is always there if you have any questions.

I really liked this school. The teacheres are superb and very caring. There are many after school programs and extracurricular activities. Soccer, drama, karate just to name a few. My son's teacher also went out of her way to keep parent's involved with what was going on in the classroom. She sent home a weekly progress report every friday which was awesome. I knew exactly what my son's strengths and weaknesses were.
