Randolph Elementary School is a neighborhood school and our students represent 40 countries and 20 languages. Randolph is a fully authorized Primary Years Program of the International Baccalaureate (PYP IB) school. We teach Virginia’s Standards of Learning (SOLs) through interdisciplinary units. Our program emphasizes critical thinking skills, taught through inquiry. We also include foreign language instruction in Spanish during the school day. The PYP IB teaches our students a global perspective and emphasizes respect for others, independent study/research skills and critical thinking. We are fully accredited by the Commonwealth of Virginia.
The strong sense of community at Randolph is nurtured by the involvement of our PTA, business partners, neighbors and also by the community service our children provide to others. Over a period of four years, the Randolph school community raised over $40,000 to install a first-class track which was completed June 28, 2013.
Randolph is also a Professional Development School of George Mason University (GMU). We participate with GMU in the Holmes Partnership of universities that prepare future teachers who spend one year as teaching interns at Randolph.
Randolph is an official Schoolyard Habitat Site of the National Wildlife Federation. The PTA and the Randolph school community come together twice a year to beautify our school grounds.
Randolph and Marymount University participate in a work-study partnership. Marymount students work with Randolph staff and students throughout the school year on activities that include tutoring students and supporting classroom teachers.
