Magnet schools promote student diversity because they are open to students outside the normal school district boundaries and often attract high caliber students through competitive programs. See Mount Vernon Elementary School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Mount Vernon Elementary School Reviews
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!
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.
