4 Things About Fort Hunt Elementary

Academics

Fort Hunt 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.

Students enrolled in the immersion program are taught math, science, and health in Spanish only during the school day. Social studies, language arts, and all other subjects are taught in English.

School Hours

If you’re relocating from another part of the country you may be unfamiliar with the Fairfax County school calendar. School starts during the last week of August and ends in either the second or third week of June.

One important thing to consider is the school’s hours of operation. 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.

Fort Hunt’s hours are Monday through Friday are 8:55 to 3:40.

Fort Hunt 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.

Fort Hunt  PTA supports the school through various fundraisers and events during the school year. The Fort Hunt PTA also sponsors enrichment programs throughout the year.

There’s even a parent carpool to help parents without transportation get to and from events held at the school. 

They also sponsor enrichment programs like Odyssey of the Mind and WordMasters. Check out their website for a list of upcoming events and meetings.

There are lots of opportunities to support your child and the school by volunteering in the lunchroom, office, and classrooms. Your level of involvement can be as much or as little as you like.
