Freedom Hill provides a very stimulating, aggressive, and supportive curriculum in an atmosphere of exceptional (even for this area) diversity which serves to nicely round out the classroom experience. There are wonderful opportunities for extra-curricular activities as well.

A true gem in Fairfax County. An administration that supports the students, an excellent core of veteran teachers, smaller class sizes, a close-knit diverse community, and an involved PTA make this school great.

Freedom Hill provides an integral education within a diverse setting. Staff daily greet the students by name. The school and PTA cater to students' various interests (FLEX foreign languages, FIT athletic programs, fine arts chorus, pottery, instrumental music programs), yet design school-wide programs that include the entire spectrum of enrolled students (from pre-school remediation through gifted/talented). Standardized test scores are lower than neighboring, less-diverse schools, possibly because of the broad spectrum and frequent arrival of non-English speaking students. School-wide events such as international day and the science fair give all students the chance to shine and participate fully in the elementary school experience.

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.
