Our children attended Deer Park from 2005 to 2011 and we absolutely loved the educational experience the school provided! The teachers are amazing and there is strong sense of community involvement. We are a military family that has moved on and we are still searching for a school as good as Deer Park was.

We bought a house in the neighborhood over the Summer and have been nothing but impressed with Deer Park. When looking for a house I would check greatschools for the ratings, and while Deer Park never rated extremely high, I used 'word of mouth' as a bigger decision maker in this process. Talking with friends who had teacher friends at Deer Park and talking to neighbors of people in the school zone and past parents, I never heard a negative word spoke. We have been nothing but happy with our decision to send our kids here. We love Deer Park!

Its a great neighborhood school. I love that in the middle of Northern Virginia, there is a school that has such a neighborhood feel to it.

I guess it's all a matter of comparison. We moved to VA two years ago from Las Vegas and have really been impressed with Deer Park School. We had our daughter in a good private school in NV for first and second grade and when we moved to VA she could barely read. They at first wanted to hold her back a year, but we insisted on third grade. The teachers have been wonderful and now our daughter is in 4th grade reading on grade level and exceeding at math. This is due in a large extent to the teachers at Deer Park.

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.
