4 Things About Fox Mill Elementary


Fox Mill 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.

Fox Mill has a partial Japanese Immersion Program for students in first through sixth grade. Students in the immersion program spend about half of each day learning mathematics, science, and health in Japanese. The other half of the day is spent learning social studies, language arts, and reading in English.

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

  • Student Council Association -students can participate through classroom representatives and student officers
  • Safety Patrol – Patrols support the staff and crossing guard during arrival and dismissal.
  • 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 show- Morning news program produced by and starring Fox Mill students

There are just about 550 students enrolled at Fox Mill Elementary each school year.

Students living in Herndon, Oak Hill, and Reston subdivisions of Bradley Acres, Fox Mill Estates, and Monterey Estates may attend Fox Mill. Fox Mill is in the South Lakes Pyramid that means if your child goes to Fox Mill they’ll go to Hughes Middle School then South Lakes High School.

School Hours

One important thing to consider is the school’s hours of operation. Fox Mill’s hours are Monday through Friday are 8:45 to 3:30 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.

Fox Mill 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 Fox Mill 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.
