Mr. Rupert was an awesome teacher at Mayfield and is an awesome Principal at Weems. He knows how to relate to kids


Posted June 19, 2014

I was worried about how my daughter would transition from Catholic school to a public school. She has done extremely well in 3rd grade this year and there are various extra curricular academic and sports related activities. The TAG program is wonderful, and is similar to having an elective in college. GOTR was also something that she thoroughly enjoyed. I'm glad that I gave Weems and public education a chance. Most of the teachers are very caring and Principal Rupert seems to really connect with the students.

What a great place to send my girls everyday. The teachers are top notch and very caring. The administration is out in the school all the time, never hiding in their office like the ones we left a couple years ago in Prince William County. The PTO is becoming very strong and the best thing is the UNIFORMS! The kids look great and behave even better. Thanks Weems for making our girls education experience a great one!

I my self attended weems and now so do my children and I think Weems is a fantastic school and is changing for the better. The staff is super friendly and super supportive of not only each other but the children and parents.

GREAT NEWS ABOUT WEEMS FOR THE 2013-2014 SY!!!!! THE CURRENT PRINCIPAL ANGELA BURNETT IS LEAVING!!!!! SHE HAS TO BE THE WORST ADMINISTRATOR MCPS HAS. I HOPE THEY MOVE BETTY GARRY INTO THAT POSITION, SHE WOULD BE OUTSTANDING AND IS A WONDERFUL ROLE MODEL FOR WES. IT HAS NEVER BEEN THE SAME SINCE GLORIA JACKSON HAS RETIRED. THE EVEN WORST THING IS THAT ANGELA BURNETT IS NOW GOING TO METZ. WATCH OUT MMS, YOU THINK DR. SAUNDERS WAS BAD, THEY LADY WILL BE EVEN WORSE.

We have had 3 of our children attend Weems and during that time there has been several changes in the school. Over the past few years, there has been changes in administration and most recently, a change in the structure of the learning, moving to a Block Schedule. I can't say that I've been impressed with the changes, unfortunately. I can only hope that Weems will be able to improve over the next couple of years and that educating students will become its strongest feature.

Both of my kids attended this school from kindergarten through 5th grade. There was some discontinuity through recent changes in the school administration but now the atmosphere is settling out and the focus is clearly on the students. There is a great child centered feeling at the school and teachers are very supportive.

My daughter and now my grandchildren attend Weems Elementary. We have been associated with this school since 1985. To date we have never had a problem with the education my family has recieved.

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.
