Hi. We are possibly relocating from NJ to NoVa. Our kids currently attend a K-8 public school here and I was wondering if there were any k-8 public schools in NoVa?

Thank you.

I don't know of any. There are a mix of K-5 and K-6 schools, and I know of at least one that is K-3 with a sister school that is 4-6.

Maybe private schools may have K-8 but don't know of any public schools that do.

In Prince William County public schools, there are "traditional" schools that are 1-8. Pennington is in Manassas and Porter is in Woodbridge. I have a few neighbors with kids at Pennington and they are very happy with it. It is very much in demand, and there is an application process/lottery to get in.

It's more of a rural thing, e.g. Rappahannock County will have one school for K-7 and another for 8-12. But it's pretty far from DC, but maybe doable if you work in western Fairfax.

I agree that it may be more common (if at all) in rural areas where there aren't enough kids to fill a traditional elementary or middle school. I am not aware of any in the Northern Virginia area, however...

My kids went to Loudoun County public schools which was K-6, then 7 & 8, then high school.

They were in private school in DC before that and that school was K-8, then high school.

Prince William County recently approved a k-8 school for Nokesville. It's not slated to open until 2014.

Thank you for all of your input. Looks like the best I could hope for would be K-6. Appreciate the information.
