Dear City of Fairfax Community,
“No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship.” – Dr. James Carver
This quote is an important one to me as it guides the work I do as Superintendent of the City of Fairfax Schools. We are committed to providing an environment for students and teachers to connect so all students can thrive.
I hope you take some time to read about our four wonderful schools and our Academy on our website. We are here to connect our community to our schools.
The City of Fairfax Schools:
- Invests in our students – laptops for students in grades 7-12, innovation labs in our middle and elementary schools, summer programs to bridge academic gaps, enrich learning, and help students transition
- Supports teachers– funding for professional development and substitutes to supporting teacher collaboration time, reimbursement to teachers for National Board Certification application fees
- Welcomes families – The FCPS Family Engagement survey reported that 91% of City of Fairfax schools’ families felt welcome in our schools
- Provides excellent facilities – Professional equipment in our Academy, turf field and hardwood gym floor in our high school, outdoor classrooms in our elementary schools, wind turbine in our middle school – we strive to provide a safe and exceptional environment for our students to succeed.
If you are a current family or staff member, I invite you to connect with us –on social media, contacting our school board or staff and let us know how we can help. If you are a prospective parent, I invite you to tour our schools.
From all of us at the City of Fairfax Schools - welcome!
Dr. Phyllis Pajardo
