School Summary

Providence Elementary School is a focus school for math, science, and technology and is one of two elementary schools located within the City of Fairfax. This unique situation allows Providence to enjoy the benefits of both FCPS and the City.

The school community is proud of its diversity with over 50 languages represented. Providence is a Responsive Classroom school where each teacher uses specific, daily practices to build community and kindness in their classrooms.

The school has a focus on enrichment for all students, and this is expressed through initiatives such as Mandarin Chinese instruction to all students in Kindergarten -6th grades, the commitment of the Providence staff to teach all students the Patterns of Thinking methodology for organizing their thoughts and thinking more deeply and critically, and the special opportunities for learning innovation skills through engineering challenges in their award-winning STEAM Lab.
