Daniels Run ES, a FCPS PK-6 grade elementary school in the City of Fairfax, was established in 2001 with the consolidation of Green Acres and Layton Hall Elementary Schools.


DRES mission is to develop better people. We celebrate and value the cultural and ethnic diversity of our families and work together with our supportive PTA who makes many of our special events, family fun nights, assemblies and before and after school programs possible. Our Family Resource Center welcomes new families and supports parents and volunteers. A caring culture, teamwork, individual effort, positive attitude and respect are all part of daily life at Daniels Run ES. DRES is a proud Positivity Project school, focusing on the whole child so they can thrive in and out of the classroom.


Daniels Run ES vision is to provide ALL children a strong academic foundation aligned with the FCPS Portrait of a Graduate. Daniels Run ES offers students the opportunity to deepen their understanding through the use of technology integrated throughout the school. As a professional learning community, the DRES staff participates in on-going professional learning to share expertise and incorporate best practices in teaching and learning. Daniels Run ES is very proud of the outstanding fine and performing arts, guidance, and physical education programs as well as an array of culturally rich learning opportunities through field trips, guest presenters, assemblies and special events.
