School Summary

Edgar Allan Poe Middle School is located near Backlick Road in Annandale and serves as one of the three grade six through grade eight middle schools in Fairfax County. Poe Middle School strives to examine intellectual development issues as they affect early adolescent school programs.

Students are offered skill development challenges that build carefully on how they can and do think during early adolescence. The intellectual curiosity of the students is nurtured by learning changes that appropriately challenge their abilities. Recognizing that students are in a transitional period, the staff members adhere to the principles of the middle school philosophy by endeavoring to meet the academic, physical, emotional, and social needs of students.

By emphasizing academic excellence, critical and creative thinking, responsible behavior, and acceptance of individual differences, the staff sets high expectations for students. The school day includes a 40 minute intervention-remediation-enrichment block embedded into the school day each Tuesday through Friday.

Students and teachers are organized in teams in which the core subjects (English, math, science, and social studies) are taught. Students' progress is assessed using conventional methods, as well as other types of authentic assessment such as portfolios, group productions, and multimedia presentations.

The Poe Middle School Plan is developed with input and involvement of staff members, parents, and students. The objectives are always to improve the academic achievement of all students and to create a school climate in which students consistently exhibit safe, honest, and respectful behavior.
