Read what parents are saying about Braddock Elementary School
We are finishing up our second year at Braddock. I am so impressed with the dedication of the staff, administration, and teachers to this community. The students share a pride in their school. The programs, like Robotics, offered to the students (most for a very minimal or NO cost) are amazing. This school is one of the only in FCPS to offer Spanish-immersion starting in kindergarten. I cannot say enough good things about what Braddock has to offer. My son is very happy there.

Both of my kids went there for all of their entire elementary years. All of the teachers were great, and both are now in Honors/IB courses. My youngest graduated 3 years ago.The only reason I gave it a 4 is because of the horrible traffic, something that every Fairfax County school has. Perhaps if FFC staggered arrival and departure times a bit and allowed more flexibility for parents, it wouldn't be so bad.

The new Principal Jackson-Muir is fantastic and really cares about the kids and encourages everyone to participate within the school: parents, grandparents, etc. She has ensured that kids with allergies are protected by informing parents and teachers that children with allergies are in their classrooms. They also have a special nut-free table in the cafeteria or a kid can eat lunch with a few friends in the library if the allergy is severe. I really appreciate Principal Jackson-Muir and the wonderful teachers involved in my child's life.

There has been a big Shake-Up at Braddock Elementary School in the past year or two. I will admit that based on previous school ratings (test-scores) and limited opinions online, I was nervous to enroll my children. However, I did enroll my children and have had nothing but a positive experience. School ratings are such a double-edged sword- there is just so much that can't be condensed down to a single number- for example: the types of teachers that elect to work in Title One schools, the support that FCPS (in terms of programs and funding) grants to lower income schools as well as the compassion and world view that children learn when diversity surrounds them daily. Braddock Elem. has an amazing staff and hallways full of amazing students.

The former principal, Cynthia Botzin, retired in school year 2013-14. In school year 2014-15, a new principal arrived. At the end of school year 2014-15, 43 teachers left Braddock Elementary. Parents should ask why so many teachers left the school.
