I am so excited that my child is enrolled in an academic program like the one at Cunningham Elem.!! She is reading everything she picks up, can do math problems in her head, and has an excellent vocabulary. I am so excited about her next couple of years at this school. I have no doubt that my child will be prepared for whatever the future holds for her because of the foundation that is being laid at this level. This school is great, the teachers are excellent and experienced, the rest of the staff is caring and also wants success for all who come through these doors. A strong education foundation is so important with all of the testing and expectations that are put on our children these days and here at Cunningham the learning begins in pre-school and takes no breaks. The school is clean, safe, and just wonderful!!!

My son is in kindergarten and switched from Goochland Elementary to here and he hates it. His teacher at Goochland did so many fun activities while here it is just learn learn learn and no fun. His class at his old school made easter rabbit baskets out of milk jugs and had a huge party while at Cunningham they did nothing. His teacher at Goochland went big for every holiday, for Saint Patricks day the kids dressed as leprechauns while this school did nothing. This school does not lock the doors making it very easy for anyone to walk in and out, , all schools should have a buzzer and camera at the front door and all doors should be locked. I moved from Maryland to Virginia and never thought I would be looking into private schools here , it is either that or special permission to go to goochland

This school has an amazing 4 year old program. Very well structured curriculums and activities! Small classroom sizes. This is a younger elementary school and the school is so cute! Tiny cafeteria, short hallways a great introduction towards a bigger school. The school is always clean and the teachers are always polite and very happy! I recommend this school!

This school is great, so tiny and cute. It offers lower grade elementary education for students living in this district. It also offers a fluvanna county 4 year old preschool program for screened/as needed students. The four year old program is a 2-3 full day class that ride the regular fluvanna elementray school buses. (There is also MACCA for preschoolers who are financially eligble). This is a very nice school.
