Two of my 3 children have gone through this school and the changes that have taken over the years have been quite shocking. Enough so that I yanked my 3rd out and put him in private school. The principal and now two vice principals appear heavily focused on the students who don't speak English while ...  Read more

My son has been attending Drainsville for the past 3 years. He has loved all of his teachers. The office staff is all very friendly and welcoming. The kids that attend are very polite and thoughtful. I have been volunteering there every weeks for the past three years so I know first had.

We love Dranesville! There is a strong history and many veteran teachers that are committed to kids and families. The PTA does a great job, there is significant parent involvement, and great school spirit. The school is clean and well cared for. We are very happy there.

My child has come home with soiled clothes several times that they didn't even notice had happened. The children noticed but not the two adults in the "small" class. My child says he wasn't able to get their attention to go in time. When he tells them he had an accident they make him fend for himself ...  Read more

This school has undergone tremendous changes in the three years my children have been here. There seems to be a BIG problem with overall communication between those in charge and teachers. Principal Manoatl is a very micro managing leader who meddles quite a bit in the curriculum year to year. There ...  Read more

Both of my kids love this school and we have been here for many years and gone through administration changes as well. The current administration and PTA do a TON of work to get parents and families involved with monthly activities. Not to mention keeping everyone up to date on events going on via ...  Read more
