    School administration is less than responsive when issues arise due to in classroom/ teacher issues.

    I absolutely love the experience we've had at Brumfield. The teachers are so caring and wonderful. We are moving soon and I really don't want to leave this school! The Pre-K program has done AMAZING things for my son who was very behind before he started. My daughter LOVES her kindergarten teacher and all the other teachers she's come into contact with. I will be so sad if we have to leave!

    Brumfield was amazing! The GT program was amazing. They took field trips and did fun stuff all year around. They also had a SPED program taught by a worman who herself had a son in the program. The Principle they had when they went there was AMAZING. She is now working at Lord Fairfax Community College. The school offered a reward at the end of the year if the schools test grades were high enough. I believe it was a play by the teachers and principles called Diffendoofer Day. The whole school had a parade in which they sang the Diffen Doofer Day song! It is so great to see your kid work for something so hard! Also the parents had say in their childs education. There were also many school dances Breakfast with Santa Bingo nad all of these were for parents and students. Overall the best school ever

    Brumfield Elementary is an awesome place of learning for any child. In the fall of 2005 my son attended this school as a kindergardner. He love being in Ms. Payne's class. He is now in fifth grade attending a school out of state because we moved but he still remembers Ms. Payne as his favorite teacher of all! She was consistently encouraging and motivating the class to learn and have fun together. The staff was always pleasant and professional. The school planned a variety of exciting events and activities supporting parent/child involvement which we thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you "Brumfield Elem." for giving my child a good foundation for learning he thrives on today. Keep up the good work!

    The staff is very kind and helpful. They are educated in their fields and they help my child to be successful. I feel my child is being educated in the areas that will impact his future.

    This is the only elementary school (public) that offers a Spanish program as part of the cirriculum. It is offered as a Special just like p.e. music art and library! The teachers put in many extra hours sponsoring after school clubs for the children. This school is environmently friendly and has won awards for their recycling efforts. It is a very diverse school and has a wonderful 'feel' as you walk through the hallways. The PTO is very active and works with the teachers to sponsor many activities throughout the year. I can not say enough about the teachers working to help the students reach their goals. The Specials teachers incorporate core subject matter into their lessons to help support what is being done in the regular classrooms. The support staff at the school has always been friendly and helpful in all our needs.

    We love Brumfield! The school is new and beautiful and the staff is energetic and caring. One of my favorite 'little extras' is that the leadership encourages parents to come to lunch with their kids if and when they can. My first grader and I use it as a treat for a week of good behavior. I have lunch there every Friday! My daughter loves it and I get to meet all her friends!
