One of the worst educational experiences for my son. Between the bullying and the focus on test scores as opposed to learning, the school administrators were unhelpful. According to the school principal, students in North Arlington have IQs in the superior range. Even if that were true, they certainly weren't attending Ashlawn.

Ashlawn is one of the best kept secrets in Arlington County. The principal is absolutely amazing. Her focus on inclusive instruction and literacy has taken our wonderful community school to a whole new level.

My daughter is attending the first grade in the Ashlawn, and I moved her here from a private school in North Carolina. I am impressed by the quality of the teachers and the curriculum, excellent language and social programs, as well as a strong focus on reading. The library is outstanding and the encouragement to read and the help the kids receive as they develop into strong, self-motivated readers deserves the highest praise. The social environment and interactions with the teachers and peers appear to be excellent and healthy, and my daughter has very much enjoyed her first year at the Ashlawn.

Ashlawn, Great school with great community feel. After school enrichment is great, helps kids learn skills which might have been hard to learn because of time constraint for the parents. It provides enriching experience for all involved.

Ashlawn benefits from a student population that is small but diverse. An active PTA exemplifies the strong commitment of families, staff, and neighbors to make Ashlawn an enriching experience for all involved.
