Aldrin Elementary is an AWESOME school! My kids love it, I love it!The faculty is like extended family. The teachers go out of their way to make sure the children understand. Mr. Wolfe and Mrs. Gist are excellent in their leadership! Mrs. Walker, the registrar, is absolutely the sweetest woman you could ever meet! The parents are extremely involved here. I am currently looking to move, but I plan to stay in the school district so that my children can stay at Aldrin.

Aldrin has been compared to a prep school based on the parent involvement, which is immense! I think there has been a HUGE improvement with the new principal, Shane Wolfe. He is highly visible, engaged with the students, and seems very committed to excellence in an extremely demanding (wealthy) North Reston environment. The administration needs to me much more respectful, aware, and transparent during the Advanced Academic selection process. Mrs. Lewis is wonderful, but there is an elitist and dismissive approach if your child is not one of the "chosen few."

Pros: VERY high parent involvement. Wealthy area (North Reston) means the school is well-resourced Current principal appears to be a HUGE improvement over the previous one Some excellent teachers Teachers and administrators really know every child Cons: They don't do well at integrating Level IV/GT studies with the general student populations. GT is a kind of a utopia while "grade level" kids are grouped with high concentrations of ESOL or special needs kids. No after-school classes for Monday afternoons! Don't seem to be on the cutting edge of FCPS This school is very large, and very

My child started kindergarten at this school and although we moved to CA for his first grade year, it took the move to really solidify what a superb school Aldrin was for my child. I throughly enjoyed my child's teacher (Mrs. Salcedo and her TA Mrs. B) We miss them and their cheery attitude immensely. My son always felt attended to and close with the both of them. The ynurtured great friendships and really took each child into consideration for all the activities and stations. The school overall is clean, manicured and colorful. The office staff is friendly and generally knows each child. The principal (at the time) was okay, no real likes or dislikes. I enjoyed the school as well as my child but we especially enjoyed the dynamic team of Mrs. Salcedo and Mrs. B.

My son is going to Aldrin for the past 3 years. He loves his school. The school maintains good standards, he moved from a private school to this school. The management is strict and at the same time encourages kids in different activities. The teachers are very nice. They work on the issues with kids in a positive manner.My son learned alot and involved in many activities. We are very happy with Aldrin.

My daughter loves this school. The teachers are very nice and encourage kids to think and do things independently. I love the atmosphere and the involvement of the PTA in the school. The office staff is kind, polite and answered all our questions. I give this school a 5 star rating.
