Fauquier County Public Schools values our community members and business/school partnerships.
“It takes a village to raise a child” is a popular proverb with a clear message: the whole community has an essential role to play in the growth and development of its young people. In addition to the vital role that parents and family members play in a child’s education, the broader community, too, has a responsibility to assure high-quality education for all students.
