We are very happy with Crossfield. We would never move and risk having to change schools! The teachers do an excellent job with differentiating instruction. The new administration is loved by staff, teachers, students, and parents. Lots of great extracurricular options. Good home for kids of all abilities, including both gifted and special ed.

I recently transferred my daughter from another Fairfax County Elementary school to Crossfield Elementary. Since it was an inter-county transfer, I didn't expect a huge difference between the two schools. Boy was I wrong. The parental involvement at this school is outstanding and is what makes this school excel above other schools in the county offering the same curriculum. Donations and parent support has allowed this school to offer more enrichment courses and after school programs and to me, that is what makes this school stand out in the county.

Unfortunately we've never really been impressed by the teachers (or administration) at Crossfield with either of our kids. Fortunately our daughter got into the AAP (GT) program at Hunters Woods. It's like a different world there, and yet only a mile or so down the road. Our experiences at Hunters Woods have been stellular; much less so at Crossfield. I'm sure in part it's due to the AAP program both as to our personal experiences as well as how the AAP program sets the tone for the entire school.

Crossfield is one of the best Schools the kids can go to. Quality rather than quantity is key aspect of this school. Children are imparted quality education in a calm atmosphere. My children love it.

The teachers and staff at this school are top notch. I have a great deal of experience in education, and Crossfield has been a blessing. They do an incredible job of challenging students and balancing and helping those in need. My own daughter has had an excellent experience in their advanced academics program. On top of that, even within the AAP classroom, there is differentiation and attention to individual needs, both for enrichment and remediation. A good friend of mine has two special needs children that received excellent, caring instruction, and accomplished things that a parent could only hope for from a public school. Again, I have a long background in education, and I would highly recommend this school to any family.

My child is a current 1st grader, the teacher is great, she's sweet and kind. My only wish is that the curriculum was a little bit more challenging. My child is advanced but they don't tailor to advanced kids. School is very clean.

This is hands down the best elementary school there is. Teachers are great and there is low staff turnover. Kids are happy and learning. Loads of parental involvement. Couldn't be happier than to have my kids educated at crossfield!

Our first year at Crossfield has been a very positive experience. I am impressed with the administration team and the teachers. My daughter loves her classroom and teacher. Looking forward to next year!

We have been very happy with Crossfield Elementary. Our children had thrived there, and been happy and safe. We are very pleased with our experiences with this school, and we feel extremely fortunate to be in Fairfax County.

Phenomenal school in every aspect! The Principal and Vice-Principal are fantastic. The teachers are enthusiastic, love the children and have terrific resources at their fingertips. There is a ton of parent involvement in the classrooms and with the PTO. Crossfield has GRACE art that is parent led once a month where the children learn more in depth about a particular artist. Crossfield also offers Spanish, Science and Odyssey of the Mind during after school learning expansion. There is also a television broadcast led by the students. Crossfield also has a gifted and talented program. There is a lot more that I can't fit into this one space. All I can say is that we love Crossfield and know of families that are moving back to the area specifically for this school pyramid.

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.
