We love this school and lucky to have our Daughter attends this school. The principal rocks.

It's an amazing school. From the principal to the teachers top notch from top to bottom.

I really wish Antietam gets 9 or even 10 within the great schools ' ratings! The staff is amazing, super professional and very helpful. The new principal is so humble and full of energy. She is everywhere even outside in the morning welcoming all the kids, with all the other teachers. My daughter's teacher is the best lady I have ever met. Honestly, when your kid is so excited to go to school and hates missing a day even when he is sick, I believe this makes the school deserves all those stars!

This is by far the very best school I have ever dealt with and HIGHLY recommend it to everyone. Unfortunately, job situations and an awful commute have required us to relocate to Maryland (which is AWFUL by the way.) My children and I miss Antietam terribly.We are currently seeking new employment in order to return to Lake Ridge because of the awesomeness of this school! While I found the principal unpleasant, the rest of the staff makes up for her shortcomings with their greatness!

This school is amazing!!! I have two children in this school 1st and 3rd...we moved to the area from Louisiana last year. Despite private education in LA, my children were struggling when they first entered this school; however, the school and the teacher diligently worked with them throughout the year. Now both are at the top of their class and love school!!! Academically, Antietam is awesome and the only thing that out shines the academics is the extra-curricular activities. Chess club, running club, scouts, tae kwon do are all offered through the school and/or community. The parents and PTA are also amazing and supportive and friendly. I am sad to have to move away from the area, but cannot wait to come back into this school system.

This is my daughter's first year at Antietam, and I am very proud to say that she is doing tremendously well! She had trouble with reading comprehension earlier in the year, but now she is doing much better and even enjoys reading more! I know it is due to her teacher and the "Study Island" staff who give her extra help after school. I am grateful to have found such a good school for my daughter to attend.

This is a great school. The teachers are really wonderful and they sincerely care for the kids. Ms. Kern is a such a wonderful asset to the school as well. We unfortunately had to move to a different state but she called me personally months after we moved to let me know that our new school had not requested school records for my daughter and wanted to know how she could get them to the new school.

My boys went to Antietam for only one year and it was one of the best schools they have attended! The teachers were wonderful, the administration was attentive, and the extra programs offered were outstanding. My youngest, who needed special help in reading, excelled and for the first time made the honor roll. I highly recommend this school and hope we can come back!

Antietam has been a great school however changes in admiinistration and teaching staff have made things murky; from basic operations to reinforcement of new hire teachers.

We have been thrilled with the attention and recognition our children have received at Antietam. While there is not a lot the school can do about PWC's unfortunate choice of math curriculum (math investigations) they are making up for it in quality of instruction!

Having my children at this school has been a wonderful experience. The staff is so welcoming to parents and encourages parental involvement. My son is in the gifted program but may also have LD/ADHD issues - the level of support I have received from his teachers and the administrative staff has been phenomenal! The music program is great - many opportunities for the kids to perform. There are many PTA-sponsored family activities to attend. It is a very close knit community, but still very welcoming to newcomers.

There has been alot of teacher turn over in the last 3-4yrs. Some teachers stay only 1 year. There are almost no after school activities and they don't seem to encourage this. Some teachers at this school are superior some are a little more weak. The art/music program are very good, not so much the p.E. The special ed program is very good and the signet program great. What makes this school great are the parents and kids and the hard work they put into this school.

I used this website when I was searching for a home. While my family and I did not find our dream home, what we did find was better than we could of asked for and that was having Antietam Elementary for our children. The Principle is outstanding and very involved in all the school activities. I was able to stay in touch with my kids teacher by email and if I could not make a conference, they would accommodate me by doing it over the phone. Although most parents have to deal with the DC traffic, it never affected their volunteering and it was the parent's involvement that impressed me the most. When you have parents who care about their child's education, then it fosters a better learning environment in the school. Sincerely, Happy Parents
