Not the best school. Bullying is a big problem here. In addition, teachers don't do anything at all. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD.

Lemon Road started advanced academic program during 2013-2014 for the first time. I really appreciate the Principal and staff hard work for taking over new responsibility and really deliver the quality. My son is a raising 5th grader this year. I could see his vocabulory has improved a lot and his organizing skills as well. The teacher was so nice and and always encouraging the kids to learn something new by working on the projects. The Garden Club definitely added. It helped them to explore about the science. The other programs that are offered in school are great as well like science olympiad. rubiks cube competitions.

I am a former student of this school, it has a great curriculum and it may be very small but it's like a family. It's a small community so everyone knows each other and we're all friends. They have wonderful teachers and a great staff. It ties into the middle schools Longfellow and Kilmer Joyce ((which I attend)) it's not at all expensive and it's a great experience.

Lemon Road Elementary is on the smaller size but recently added an AP program and had a two story addition added to it. We've found the teachers and staff to be very helpful and most importantly our children have flourished at the school. Great diversity and challenging curriculum. We considered moving, but have stayed in the area so both kids will go all six grades there.

Great "small" community school - a real gem! The administration is amazing, the PTA is fantastic and the school is growing to be a AAP center starting in 2013-14! We relocated to Nova the summer of 2012 and selected this school due to it's smaller size and our impression from the registar. It had a new principal for 202-13, but he was responsive to parents and focused on building the school. The PTA truely is fabulous, the community student families are pretty involved, the after-school program offereings are nice and they have girl scout troops! We look forward to seeing Lemon Road progress with it's expansion and being an AAP center next year! Go Lemon Road Lions! Hope to give you a 5 star rating next year!

This school is a true gem. The principal has built a reputation of hiring the best staff around. The school has a very high rate of success in working with a range of students. Academic and Behavioral expecatations are high for each and every student and the staff continually challenges itself to get better. The PTA has a wonderful president who will serve another term in 2005-2006. Parents seem to be involved but afford the staff the respect that they deserve as professionals. This school has very little discipline problems to speak of. Teachers use opportunites to teach students about choices and that they are responsible for these choices. The office staff, the building manager and custodians, the kitchen staff, instructional assistants, teachers, parents, instructional assistants, SAAC progam and all other support personnel take extreme pride in what they do to make this, in my opinion, the best elementary school in the county!

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.
