Beech Tree 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.
Beech Tree is a Local Level IV program for Fairfax County Advanced Academic Placement for grades 3rd-5th. Level IV advanced placement is a full-time program. Students that qualify for Level IV Services have the option of attending Belvedere or remaining at Beech Tree, their neighborhood school.
The biggest difference between the two programs is students enrolled. All students in full-time, center-based classes like Belvedere 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 Beech Tree, the students are a mix of students who are center-eligible and high achieving students who are capable of working at an advanced level.
Beech Tree is one of the few elementary schools in the area that offers FLES or Foreign Languages in Elementary Schools. The program helps students learn a world language, in this case Arabic, through Science and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) integrated content.
There are fewer than 400 students enrolled at Beech Tree Elementary each school year making it one of the smallest elementary schools in Fairfax County.
Students living in the Falls Church subdivisions of Broyhill Park, City Park Homes, Hillwood, Holmes Run Park, Roundtree, and Valleybrook may attend Beech Tree. Beech Tree is in the Justice Pyramid that means if your child goes to Beech Tree they’ll go to Glasgow Middle School then Justice High School.
