Last week, one of our readers asked a very important question. She wanted to understand why it was that a home for sale that she really liked had “funky” school assignments.
In her particular situation, the house that she was considering was in the Woodson High School boundary (she used the Home by School interactive app* to find it).
Once she found the house, she double-checked the schools on the home listing with the official boundary system at the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) website .
She double-checked the official FCPS school assignments
When she confirmed what the official FCPS school assignments were for that house, she found that while the assigned high school was Woodson, and the middle school was Frost MS (in the Woodson Pyramid), the elementary school was not in the Woodson Pyramid.
Instead, the elementary school assigned to that house belonged to the Fairfax Pyramid.
Our reader was, rightfully, confused and wondered what that meant in the long run
- Could it be that the assignments were incorrect?
- Or perhaps that the middle and high schools would be re-assigned in the future to the Fairfax Pyramid?
