Exceptional administration who truly focus on the kids. Teachers there are talented, passionate and loving, who are eager to share their excitement for learning. I've had three children attend this school, one with special needs, and I can only offer genuine praise for Culbert. As far as the other comment about the PTA spending 100K on the playground, yes, that was a parent initiative and one we were active in. However, the decision of the very active PTA to do so didn't reduce the amount of field trips my children experienced. We still hosted a myriad of educational events including Colonial Days and sponsored all grade field trips and fund raising for the playground took place over several years. Yes, please do your homework and see that this fantastic school, that puts the kids first and politics second, that supports the parents and community, is exactly where you'd want your children to be.
Subpar compared to other elementary schools in Loudoun County. Do you homework and visit a few of the other schools with your children over the summer. I think the PTA spent $100k on a playground set, how many educational field trips to the Smithsonian could have been taken instead?
Moved from the famed Fairfax county school system and find this school extraordinary. The teachers, staff, and principal are completely hands on,, very involved and genuinely excited to be at Culbert. This is a place where all of my children feel valued, safe, and happy. Their positive teaching style and attention to providing an excellent, balanced education is top notch.
