Advanced Academics

Fairfax County Public Schools offers a continuum of advanced academic services for students K-12 that builds upon students' individual strengths and skills and maximizes the academic potential for all learners.

Our school Advanced Academic Resource Teacher (AART), Beth McCrodden, collaborates with the school staff to determine the appropriate level of advanced academic services. Parents may refer their child for advanced academic services or get additional information on the screening process or advanced academic opportunities at our school by contacting Ms. McCrodden. Ongoing observation and assessment ensures that student needs are being met.

Additional information about levels of service and the screening process can be found in the AAP Spring and Fall Newsletter:
