Ravensworth Elementary School

5411 Nutting Drive

Ravensworth Elementary School is committed to providing a stimulating and challenging educational experience to every student. Ravensworth Elementary is a school where the climate is one of mutual respect and support. We encourage diversity and risk taking for our staff, our students, and within our community. Through this approach we are realizing potentials and fostering individuality.

Students are encouraged to participate in a number of leadership roles provided by the Student Council Association and safety patrols.

Ravensworth School has been located for over 30 years in the Ravensworth Farms area of Fairfax County. Because of the Spanish partial-immersion and School Age Child Care programs, the school currently serves students from across Fairfax County. Efforts are made to ensure that every student's family has an opportunity to participate in the large "community" of the Ravensworth family.

I have been noticing that main office staff members are very rude. When my older daughter went to Ravensworth, staff members of main office were very nice but now they do not have sense of how to talk to adults. They talk to you like one of children. You would think their manners and communication skills are better since they work in educational environment, but quite the opposite. I can not wait for my child to graduate.

As you can see, the previous reviews are sparse and not helpful. So here's my humble opinion...I LOVE THIS SCHOOL. The principal, Mrs. Salata is AWESOME. The Vice Principal, Mr. Paper, is also great; they are both very hands on with both the students and the parents. I have loved all of my sons' teachers. Both of my sons have IEP's and I am very happy with the education, approach and services offered by the school. Parents can be as active as they would like through multiple volunteer opportunities. Lastly, there are people who MOVE to this school district because of Ravensworth's SPANISH IMMERSION education opportunity where children are taught in Spanish to "immerse" them in the language. I believe families who choose this education track have to apply to be accepted into it, and their children are taught 1/2 in Spanish and 1/2 in English. If my boys weren't special ed, I would have LOVED to sign them up for this. All in all, Ravensworth is a GREAT school. My children had attended two other schools before Ravensworth but Ravensworth is my favorite. :)
