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!

It is our first year at Old bridge and we are very impressed! Our children love it! Great teachers and staff. The school offers many activities and is academically challenging. We would recommend this school to anyone moving in the area!

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.

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.
