Open Quote Garrisonville Elementary is a GREAT school. It is ranked low because Stafford CTY has had an influx of Spanish speaking children and to no one's surprise in a predominantly English speaking county the district is trying to compensate for the issues surrounding that. All of the scores will be skewed lower. Because of the teachers and cirriculum my child reads at a grade level higher than the state average. Close Quote

Open Quote My son attends GES and I cannot wait for his younger siblings to attend the school as well. Every experience at every level that we have had with the teachers, leadership and faculty have been outstanding. A true emphasis is placed on each student and the teachers effectively identify their strengths and weaknesses. I cannot rate this school high enough! Close Quote

Open Quote teachers have gone above and beyond for my children and the administration is some of the best we have ever encountered. Close Quote

Open Quote I cannot understand why this school is low-ranked.
The teachers differentiate instruction. (My kid is below grade in math and gets pull-out for that, while she is above grade in reading and gets appropriate challenging material for that subject.)
There is SO much community and school spirit!
Kids are open-minded and welcoming. (My child is an ethnic minority but does not face bullies or discrimination.)
The grade level teachers work together to give kids common experiences across the grade.
There is not too much homework.

I don't know. Maybe the bad things are:
Too much focus on SOLs.
Only 1 recess per day when most research show kids need more than that. Close Quote

Open Quote I was a student at Garrisonville about 7 years ago until i had to move because my dad was in the military. This school was really great and I miss it. Even though I'm in high school now I still wish I could reverse time and come back to school there :) 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.
