Community Rating & Reviews

  • (1 year ago)

    Excellent Program K-8. Small class sizes (~16/class) Every student is known by teachers and Headmaster. (In fact Headmaster regularly greeted my youngest children by name before they were old enough for kindergarten) Strong emphasis on parental involvement (so not for everyone) but you will quickly know the families of each of your children's classmates. Solid academics - includes Latin. School is Christ-centered and welcoming. (Yes the school name comes from Lord of the Rings)

    Amazing jewel in the heart of Arlington. Forms not classes structure (combines 2 grades in one class) and unit studies (focus on topics that all curriculum centers on for 4-6 week period). Innovative creative utilizes many styles of teaching to reach all kids. Students go to all top private DC prep/highschools and ivy league from here w/top test scores. Parental involvement required (keep costs down and build community). Minimal extracurricular encourage kids to participate in county/community sports/activities. Atmosphere cultivates loving & kind children that are informed on issues and faith but no cookie cutter. Biblical based world view integrated into curriculum & activities. Kids are prepared to face the world not sheltered from it. Music & the arts are integrated into the curriculum (plays concerts poetry slams!!). Kids love & are proud of their school & take care of it (and each other). Long waiting list so apply early.
