Hello, we are in our 30's considering moving to the Waynewood neighborhood near the Potomac river. We have a 2 year old and we were wondering if anyone out there knows anything about Waynewood Elementary school? How about Stratford Landing Elementary? Are they good schools? How is the area for kids and parents of young children?

Waynewod, sometimes referred to as "whitewood" is a "good" school. Most of the surrounding schools have large populations of lower income students and many of those schools have been labeled "failing," but waynewood is an exception. However, it still feeds into the local middle and high schools, which are not so desirable.

OMG!! Someone better tell all those white parents at Waynewood what lies in store for their children once they head off to middle school! Or do you think it's possible they already know?

By the way, the schools that surround Waynewood are Belle View, Hollin Meadows, Stratford Landing and Fort Hunt. Which are these schools have been labeled "failing" and by whom? They have GreatSchools ratings of 5 (Belle View and Hollin Meadows), 6 (Fort Hunt) and 8 (Stratford Landing), which range from decent to excellent.

"Failing" is a federal label to describe schools that have not achieved sufficiently high scores on standardized tests. Some of the schools you listed fall under that category, but you also didn't mention many others that feed into the same middle and high school.
