Excellent! We couldn't be happier. The facilities are nice and the staff is exceptional. Parent involvement is high. The PTO is very active in supporting functions, field trips, and technology for the students. We have two children attending, and it has been a joy watching them learn and mature. I highly recommend OBE.

WE LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!! This is absolutely a school of excellence!! Both of my children go here and love it! The teachers, Principal, and staff are amazing, helpful and VERY involved. I have absolutely no complaints what so ever about this school, we love it here! There is a zero tolerance for bullying and I feel very safe knowing my children are in great hands here. I highly recommend this school to anyone considering moving to this school district! They go above and beyond at OBE!

My children (grades 2&5) are in their second year at OBES & love every moment of it. My youngest, most especially was not one of those kids that found school very appealing. I am thrilled that, for the second year in a row, he remains enthusiastic about going to school every day. My oldest is in the Signet Program & is having a great time learning. In addition to a superb academic environment, I am most impressed with the conduct of the children in this school. As great as a school could possibly be, if you & your child are witnessing behavioral issues in the building, it will not be a great environment for your child. This school appears to have zero tolerance for inappropriate behavior - though certainly not in a heavy-handed way. If I could give higher than 5 stars for teachers, administration & support staff I would!

I have three of my four kids going to school here. I'm in the Air Force and this is their third elementary school. It is bar far the best one yet compared to the ones in Oklahoma and Nevada. The teachers are fantasic and there is a decent amount of money put into the school by the PTA. All the teachers have Smart Boards in their rooms and it enhances the childern's learning quite a bit. The homework load is perfect. The school is clear and all of staff is very professional and nice. I haven't heard any complaints from any of my neighbors whose kids go there as well. Don't hesistate to send your kids here.

Old Bridge Elementary is and should be the absolute model for other schools to follow. The principal is outstanding as is the rest of the staff. The staff do really get to know each child and family. There is a very high rate of parental involvement as well. Whether your child exceeds their grade level or are struggling even in just one area, the staff does their best to cater to each child's needs. I really wish the whole rest of the country would take a look at this school and use it as a model for how others should operate. Definitely a 5 star!

OBE was our son's fourth school and it was by far the experience we've had with a elementary so far. The principal is simply OUTSTANDING. You will be hard pressed to find a better leadership staff in all of PW county.

My son entered this school in the first grade and has really enjoyed his time here. Old Bridge has gone far and above my expectations. The principal and staff know each child by name and are extremely friendly towards everyone. Old Bridge has many programs after school for students,parents and their siblings to enjoy including movie night and dances! We are moving and are sad to go. This is definitely a model school. If you have a child entering the first grade, you will be blessed to have Mrs. Gundersen as your child's teacher!

I must say I love that my son is going to this school. Three months into Kindergarten he learned how to read and is doing really well at beginner math. This school has an high emphasis on education, discipline and respect for others. The curriclum is challenging but fun and the staff is good natured. My son loves his teacher and loves going to school

OBE is the best! We are ending our first year here as a military family and couldn't ask for a nicer office staff and teachers. Everyone is always smiling and very friendly. I am very pleased with both of my children's teachers. They far exceeded my expectations in challenging them to higher levels.

I have had 6 children go to Old Bridge Elementary, We have been there since 1999. I am very pleased with the school, and the teachers. I have only had one teacher I didn't feel was doing the very best for my child. She was a screamer. All of the other teachers (there have been many!) Are excellent! My children feel safe, they are in a very diverse cultural society at OBE. My children don't see race issues. They have excellent programs for gifted kids, and the playground is really fun. The kids have really enjoyed the music programs too!

I have had children at Old Bridge since the second year it opened. Two of our children have moved on and we still have two at Old Bridge. We have seen many changes over the years, three different principals, many staff changes and a diversity of children. We love Old Bridge and always have. School of Excellence year after year, check to see how many other Prince William schools have achieved that honor.

Our daughter loves OBES as do we. The teachers are professional, caring people. They have helped our daughter make great strides in the two years she has been there. We are thoroughly pleased with the academic and social progress she has made.

Old Bridge Elementary School is one of the most outstanding schools my children have ever attended. We are a Military Family and two of my three children went to OBE. I loved the school so much that after my children moved on to Middle School and High School, I decided to apply for a job at OBE. I am pleased to say that today I am not only a very pleased alumna parent, but also a very proud staff member

What can I say? I love to send my kids to OBES each day! The diversity in this school is phenomenal...many different ethnicities and languages spoken. The kids feel special because their teachers care. I disagree with the parent who stated that there is too much emphasis on mastery for the SOLs and not enough on the curriculum! The SOLs measure the mastery of the curriculum and I've seen teachers monitor this all year long. OBES has a great test score history and continues to strive for the best for their kids. The teachers my kids have are very caring and loving but instill in my kids a positive work ethic and level of responsibility that I've not seen elsewhere. There are problems in every school. OBES has its share of challenges but the administration and teachers do everything possible to ensure the safety of my kids and others!

Old Bridge Elementary is a dynamic school. The principal projects excellence and expects it from the teachers and students. All parties rise to the challenge! For 7 straight years, Old Bridge has been rated a 'School of Excellence' by Prince William County Schools. I am pleased with the education my son is receiving there. My son has been at the school for 2 years and I've been able to participate in the classroom, PTO, special events, field trips, career days, amongst many others. All I had to do was show up, stay in touch, and be willing to help out in a variety of capacities! I find that everyone is excited to do more to make OBES the best!

Old Bridge is a great school! Administration, teachers, students, and parents all work very hard to meet the ever rising standards and we were named a School of Excellence in Prince William County again this year. The top priority of the staff is to provide a well rounded education for every student. Old Bridge Elementary is a great choice for any family!

The teachers and staff in this school are excellent! They are constantly seeking professional development classes and exploring new challenges in the field. Teachers who have a strong desire to learn will also inspire this in their students. I love to teach again because I am with real teachers!

Way too much focus on preparation for the SOLs and not enough focus on curriculum and progress. They pay too much attention to this particular testing and it stresses some of these children out. The anxiety level on my child alone just during SOL is at an all time high. Not much involvement in Parent activities unless you know another parent who is in the group of the PTA. Very much a click thing!

I choose to send my daughter to Old Bridge Elementary, because I like the environment, teachers and leadership. My daughter enjoys the school and is excited to go and I enjoy her excitement.
