Mount Vernon Elementary School Reviews

Test scores!!!

By a Parent on

The question is that if they have such great teachers, why are they still struggling with test scores? What makes some other schools in VA score at 8 and above but not this one or some others around this  area? We're considering this area for purchasing a house but the test scores are not very convincing!

By a Parent on

This is a wonderful place to send your children to school.  The staff is committed to children and the dynamic and diverse environment makes for an excellent experience.  While test scores are always a struggle, I recommend considering Mt Vernon if you appreciate a multi-cultural school with quality teachers.
