    My oldest son is about to enter second grade and my youngest will soon starts kindergarten. We love George Mason the staff are great and students get music art and gym every week. The playground is beautiful. For being so close to DC the George Mason community has a small town feel. It's a great place to send your children to every day.

    I have had three children go there and it offers everything you'd want in an elementary school -- great teachers small class size strong leadership and parentat involvement

    Top test scoring school in Alexandria for Math. Also top in many others. George Mason and Douglas MacArthur are the top 2 schools in Alexandria. There really are not many others that are at this level. Excellent school.

    This is truly the most amazing school in Alexandria. Award winning teachers parents who are involved a principal who is supportive. A parent couldn't ask for anything more.

    Very pleased; parents are very involved; teachers are nice and do a great job. Our kindergartner was identified as being an advanced reader by the teacher within the first week and provided with advanced opportunities by the second week; truly amazing.
