Short Pump Elementary is one of the very best elementary schools in all of central Virginia. Smart and caring teachers who challenge the students, while at the same time promoting a safe and bully-free learning environment. An outstanding principal who is leading the school in the right direction. And a terrific staff who work very hard behind the scenes. Short Pump Elementary is a special place and you're lucky if your kids go there!

Extremely happy with the quality of academic excellence, teachers and the parents involvement. Overall I am very satisfied that my child goes to the best school. There wasn't any time when any of my concerns went unanswered. They are always there to help you and your child.

We struggled with the decision between private and public school and now that my son is in the 3rd grade we consider ourselves very lucky to be in this school. The teachers provide a differentiated curriculum and keep the advanced kids challenged. The school welcomes parent involvement and the PTA is wonderful. The Art teacher and PE teacher are fabulous too. The school also offers wonderful programs like the Kids Club. My son absolutely loves the school and we do too.

My basis for the five star rating comes now that my son is in middle school. Short Pump provided him with the foundation needed to excell at the next level, which is what I hope each of his educational experiences does. Sometimes, while he was there I felt that there was TOO much emphasis on the SOL (minimum competency test) in the last nine weeks of school. Imagine all of the cool things his teachers could have done in the spring, but it seems that somewhere ther eis a push for a complete review grading period.

This school is over the top, in every way. The teachers are excellent, and parent involvement is encouraged. We've been at the school for 3 years & wouldn't change a thing.
