- a
They have a great assistant principal, and I highly disagree about the other comments about bad communication. Sadly, the lady who was named after this school died around April 2016.



- a
This school really needs some work on the turnover rate with the staff, communication, and overall workflow. The school has potential. This used to be a really great school with a lot to offer the children. I would love to see it get back to that.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Children have little to no homework to reinforce what they have learned during the day.




- a
The community member who reported that the school has been investigated by the Department of Justice has been misinformed. Fitzgerald Elementary is one of several Prince William County Schools selected at random to ensure English Language Learners are receiving the services promised to them by the Department of Justice. These visits may occur in any Prince William County School.

- a
The principal undermines the teachers and once they move on to other schools she gives them bad references for no reason at all. The teacher attrition rate is laughable at best. The principal is more worried about regulations and saving her own skin rather than trusting her teachers and doing what is right for the school as a whole. There is no support from her to the staff and she doesn't know how to treat people with common courtesy or respect.
