4 Things About Armstrong Elementary

Academics

Armstrong has an Advanced Academic Program for students in grades K-6. The school works with teachers to identify students that may benefit from the program, however, you can also request a screening of your child by contacting the school directly. If your child is selected for the AAP program they’ll be pulled out with other students throughout the week for those subjects.

Armstrong is a Local Level IV program for Fairfax County Advanced Academic Placement for grades 3rd-6th. Level IV advanced placement is a full-time program. Students that qualify for Level IV Services have the option of attending Forest Edge or remaining at Armstrong, their neighborhood school.

The biggest difference between the two programs is students enrolled. All students in full-time, center-based classes like Forest Edge have been identified as center-eligible by a central selection committee and will be coming from several neighborhood schools. In a Local Level IV classroom at Armstrong, the students are a mix of students who are center-eligible and high achieving students who are capable of working at an advanced level.

There are many activities for students before, during, and after school:

  • Student Council Association -students can participate through classroom representatives and student officers
  • Chorus, Band, and Strings – students in the upper grades may choose to participate in one of these electives in addition to general music
  • Morning News Broadcast Team Morning news program produced by and starring Brookfield students
Enrollment

There are just over 400 students enrolled at Armstrong Elementary each school year, making it one of the smallest elementary schools in Fairfax County.

Students living in the Herndon and Reston subdivisions of North Point Villas, Oak Crest Estates, Reston, Ridgewood, Shaker Woods, Stuart Ridge, and Summerhouse Landing may attend Armstrong. Armstrong is in the Herndon Pyramid that means if your child goes to Armstrong they’ll go to Herndon Middle School then Herndon High School.

We always recommend you check out the Fairfax County Boundary Locator to confirm the schools serving a specific address before making any decision to buy or rent a home.

School Hours

One important thing to consider is the school’s hours of operation. Armstrong’s hours are Monday through Friday are 8:55 to 3:40 for grades K – 6th.

If you need to be at work by 8:30 that could present some challenges for you, especially if you’re commuting to the District or the Pentagon.

Armstrong offers SACC which is a before and after-school program has with the Office for Children of Fairfax County. However, I have to warn you that SACC often times has a waiting list that’s months long. Check out the SACC website to see if there are spots currently available.

If you are unable to get your child signed up for SACC there are a number of private before and after care programs in the area that will drop off and pick up your child.

Parent Involvement

Parent involvement has been linked to student achievement. When looking for a school for your kids you’re also looking for a school that’s a good fit for you as well.

The Armstrong PTA supports a number of activities in the community including social events and fundraisers. Each school year the PTA offers a number of fee-based after-school enrichment programs. They vary year to year and range from science focused to athletics and the arts.

The school welcomes parents to set up a time with your child’s teacher to volunteer in the classroom, read a book to the class, or come in to have lunch with your child. Your level of involvement can be as much or as little as you like.
