    My daughter is now in third grade and has attended since kindergarten. The principal faculty and staff are warm and helpful. Mrs Wade has been extremely helpful and patient with my daughter.

    Wonderful Faculty and Education! When it was time for my daughter to attend kindergarten my family struggled with the decision of private school vs. public school. My daughter started kindergarten at Elizabeth Scott two plus years ago and we ve never regretted a moment. The school was built within the last five years so it has the latest technology and equipment. In addition it has a seasoned principal with an excellent reputation so much so that many of the current faculty members followed her to Scott for the opportunity to be part of her staff. All of my daughter s teachers have done a wonderful job challenging her and in areas where she exceled placing her in separate reading and math groups. The school s staff also energizes the students exciting and motivating them about learning! Recently the students were challenged to read 1 million minutes. When students reached specific goals their names were posted for all to see and were personally awarded colored bracelets by the principal and vice principal. Each classroom tracked their minutes listing the top three readers. The school reached its million minute goal in December. My daughter was so excited!

    Unorganized mess! My child attended Eliz Scott for Kind. & 1st grade and I was not pleased wt how little supervision there is for the kids. My son got away from his class & was found alone outside playing unsupervised @ 5 yrs old. He was given silent lunch & left his lunch in the class & sat alone wt no lunch & no one noticed my 6 yr old went all day wtout eating. The school asks for money on a weekly basis for everything you can imagine. Parents are asked to volunteer for everything because they have 0 staff. No background check for parents who volunteer. Unstructured! Unorganized! Unsupervised Mess! Good Luck!

    For a fairly new school it is above average compared to Northern Virginia schools. They still need to work on some management improvements.

    My grandson is in 1st grade and his teacher is great! The staff are great also

    Even though the school rates an 8 there are concerns that I have about the administration. No one wants to admit that bullying is a problem at this school not just with my child but other students as well. The administration has tried to brush it off as kids being kids. The student to teacher ratio is way above the standards that the state has set. The district would rather pay a fine instead of hiring new staff members to correct the problem. Academically I feel that the school is more concerned with the SOL test scores than they are in actually educating the children. The teachers are pressured throughout the year in regards to teaching a test. Concerned Parent of a student at ESE

    The faculty is great. The teachers and the staff are very helpful. School has won the Governors award and the Chesterfield County Award for being the most welcoming school. School and PTA have lots of opportunities for parents to get involved.

    My son went to Scott Elementary which opened in 2008 and to Davis Middle which opened in 2008. My son loves both schools. There is video recording inside the building and out. Incidents between students occur rarely and if are dealt with immediately and very professionally. The faculty is great. The teachers and the staff are outstandingly helpful. Parents are daily updated on homework upcoming test and test results by simply loggin on to 'Edline'. Edline also enables parents to communicate with all the teachers via email whenever desired.
