Haycock is a great school with good teachers and a very good learning environment. The parents are encouraged to get involved although the school is really crowded being one of the best everybody moves to this school district. The buildings are old and some classes are still held in trailers and quads. Wish FCPS would provide more money to the school to help the students, teachers and the community

Haycock is an excellent school and it provides a wonderful learning environment for the students! The teachers are great and their students really respect them.

Haycock is an excellent school. We moved into the Mclean school cluster from nearby Arlington specifically for the schools, and I am now sure this was the right move. The kindergarten teacher Ms Waterston's style of teaching is a wonderful blend of caring and structured discipline in her class. The parent body is very involved as well.

Haycock is the best overall. My son loves his school, teachers and friends. The class size is okay and hopefully it won't get too big next year.

Haycock is the best GT school. My son is challenged enough in his class room. This is great.

Compared to the other schools my children have attended, the teachers, staff and parents all make it a wonderful place for my children to learn. Parents are encouraged to get involved and so many ways to help their children learn a sense of community. I just wish the FCPS & School Board would invest as much time in it as the parents have & teachers have. It is a forgotten gem in a large public school system.

Haycock has the best teachers, parents and students in all of Fairfax County. The teachers are all learners and stay up to date with teaching strategies. They reach out to students and parents and they work very, very hard to provide an excellent education for all students. The parent community is active and involved and very supportive of the school. You couldn't ask for a better place to learn.

Some teachers are inexperienced, unprofessional, and are unprepared to teach most notably on Mondays and Fridays. GT program is overrated when compared to another program at my child's former elementary school. My child is not being challenged.

Information is not readily available to parents. Class sizes are extremely large. PTA is an inclusive club. Focused on GT and not other students Private cliches exist within the school. Small children are in trailers. Need more experienced teachers.

This is the best school ever! We have such great staff and students and the Haycock makes learning and playing much more fun!!

My child attends the GT program in this school. I can sincerely say that this school is in a league of its own. The former elementary school attended by my child was so far away in terms of academics, transparency of school issues, and teacher involvement. We are extremely pleased with this school.

I have had two kids go through this school. I school has provided the best possible education and environment for my children. The teachers are driven, enthusiastic and want to keep their students challenged, always. The PTA is remarkable...a well knit community. The specialists are the best.

Haycock was the best elementary school my child could have gone to. They win all kinds of awards in every subject, and the teachers are great! The library is really good, to.

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.
