4 Things About Bonnie Brae Elementary


Bonnie Brae 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 contact the school directly.

Bonnie Brae is a Local Level IV program for Fairfax County Advanced Academic Placement for grades 3rd-4th. Level IV advanced placement is a full-time program. Students that qualify for Level IV Services have the option of attending White Oaks or remaining at Bonnie Brae, their neighborhood school.

The biggest difference between the two programs is students enrolled. All students in full-time, center-based classes like White Oak 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 Bonnie Brae, 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:

  • Chorus, Band, and Strings – students in the upper grades may choose to participate in these  electives in addition to general music
  • Safety Patrol – Patrols support the staff and crossing guard during arrival and dismissal.
  • BBES Morning News Show- student anchors run a morning news program each school day
  • SCA (Student Council Association) – made up of officers and representatives from each classroom. 

There are nearly 800 students enrolled at Bonnie Brae Elementary each school year. That includes students enrolled full-time in grades K through 6 and also a handful of students in the part-time preschool program.

Students living in the Burke, Fairfax, Fairfax Station subdivisions of Bonnie Brae, Burke Centre, Burke Cove, Colony Park, Middleridge, and Woodlynne Community may attend Bonnie Brae. Bonnie Brae is in the Robinson Pyramid that means if your child goes to Bonnie Brae they’ll go to Robinson Middle School then Robinson 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. Bonnie Brae’s hours are Monday through Friday are 8:30 to 3:15 for grades K – 6th. Bonnie Brae offers two part-time preschool programs from 9:20-12:30 and 12:35-3:55, respectively. 

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.

Bonnie Brae 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 Bonnie Brae PTO supports a number of activities in the community including social events and fundraisers. Each school year the PTO 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.
