We have two children, both have graduated from Waples Mill E.S.. Great experience, time passes so fast, it was a peaceful, blessed education. Thanks to all involved.

My kids love going to school here! They do everything in their power to keep the children from falling behind in a caring attentive manner.

This school has some pros and cons like any other school. Programs are good but that all depends on the teacher. Some teachers are working their for so long, I feel like they hate their job. I think school should give them early retirement and welcome new faces.

Too many phone calls to parents with insignificant problems. But when something serious happens, like several lice outbreaks, they give you a notice, but that's all. No separation of students, no removal of the student with the repeats incidents. Also too much parent involvement for this working mom.

My daughter has attended this school since kindergarden and she's now in the 3rd grade. I have loved all of her teachers - they are very dedicated and take each student's needs to heart. My daughter was placed in the Advanced Academic Program and she has excelled. Class size is reasonable, content is far and away more challenging than I received in elementary school. A++ all around.

We love this school!. Even though we moved house our one criteria was that we had to stay within the same Waples Mill area! Teachers are dedicated and hard working. The school is able to both challenge kids near the top of the class as well as give extra help to those needing it. School is well equipped and parental involvement is huge. Sometimes parent meetings/events can't fit in the cafeteria...!

Hello, My daughter and son have been attending WMES since 2009. The teachers and staff have done a fantastic job with general and special learning needs. Two and a half years later--The Results speak for quality and attention my children are given. Great School!

sent my son to this school after reading all the other reviews on this website, but found it absolutely not a good school at all ,very unwelcoming school office staff, unconcerned principle and irresponsible kindergarten teacher not concerned at all about children's safety inside her own class room her excuse was that she has 27 kids to watch.

I think Waples is a great school! The staff is well educated, constantly striving to make learning interesting and encourages learning by incorporating the kids strengths. Parent involvment is encouraged. The pta is very active.

I love this school. The teachers are wonderful. We will be moving soon and I am having a hard time finding a program that even compares to the one offered at Waples Mill

Fantastic school! One of the few best school in Fairfax Co. The teachers are of the highest quality. The curriculum is outstanding, awesome technology, superior library. Loads of parental involvement, strong and active PTA. Most important, students are taught math & reading to their abilities, 100% passed SOL. The teachers of each grade level work as a team and pull in specialists for the groupings to ensure that each student is getting the instruction that he/she needs
