Open Quote We've attended two public schools in Virginia, and this is an EXCELLENT school. My daughter received a better education at this school than at a "higher ranked" public school in a different area. They do performances, projects, presentations, and have excellent teachers. The principal is great as well. Close Quote

Open Quote A wonderful school where parents and teachers are involved with the students at all times. The staff genuinely cares for their students, and really wants each child to succeed. A great community feeling among parents and staff. I have had 3 children attend Grandin Court (my youngest still does) and continue to succeed throughout their academic careers, thanks to the foundation they received at this school. I'm so glad when we purchased our home we based our choice after visiting this school. It's a choice I'll never regret and that was 11 years ago. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
