4 Things About Ravensworth Elementary

Academics

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

Ravensworth 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. If your child is selected for the AAP program they’ll be pulled from class with other students throughout the week for those subjects.

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

  • Chorus – students in the upper grades may elect to participate in the school choir in addition to general music
  • Safety Patrol – Patrols support the staff and crossing guard during arrival and dismissal.
  • WRAV 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. 
Enrollment

There are close to 600 students enrolled at Ravensworth 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 and Springfield subdivisions of Fox Lair, Ravensworth, and Signal Hill may attend Ravensworth. Ravensworth is in the Lake Braddock Pyramid that means if your child goes to Ravensworth they’ll go to Lake Braddock Middle School then Lake Braddock 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. Ravensworth’s hours are Monday through Friday are 8:35 to 3:20 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.

Ravensworth 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 Ravensworth PTA supports a number of activities including Bingo Night, Family Movie Night, and Grace Art. 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.
