Dear friends of FCPS!
Welcome! If this is your first visit to our website, I’d like to point out several things about FCPS that you ought to know! If you are a frequent visitor to our website, read on because this is information that may be helpful to you.
- We launched our new website this fall, and it is wonderful! It takes time to get used to any new website and, in our case, the new site is very different from our last one
- We are in the midst of a study of both Warrenton and Taylor Middle Schools that will likely result in a recommendation to our school board to either renovate, consolidate, or build two new schools (along with some other possibilities). This is a big deal to Fauquier County because we are a relatively small school division with relatively little growth. There is a portion of our website dedicated to memorializing the process thus far.
- Our SAT scores, AP test scores and participation, and graduation rates continue to amaze. Over 95 percent of our students graduated on time from our three high schools, and our average SAT scores rose to 1569 (47 points above the state average and 116 points above the national average). Plus, we administered 955 AP tests last year!
- Our school board is amazing! They support teachers, students, and staff with fervor and passion. We are very fortunate.
- Our class sizes remain ideal, and our small, community-oriented schools are welcoming and warm.
- We have the best teachers in the state. They are second to none, and we are blessed to have them!
I love Fauquier County! If you are visiting our website because you are considering a move here, please take your time and explore. We have a lot to be proud of. For anyone else who is visiting, thank you for supporting our kids and our schools! Likewise, we are ALWAYS trying to find ways to improve, so please feel free to share any thoughts you might have with us.
Here’s to a great remainder of the school year.
Dr. David Jeck
