Galloping to Success at Antietam!
Antietam Elementary School is nestled in the beautiful tree-lined area of Lake Ridge, Virginia. It first opened in 1990. Last year we began a full renovation of the school that is scheduled to be completed in August of this year. Through this renovation every classroom was updated with energy saving devices, including light switches, LED lighting, and state of the art Epson Brightlink Interactive Projectors.
Classrooms were also outfitted with new cabinetry and germ fighting carpets. We received a brand new activity room, music room, and a new, more secure front entrance/office area. This summer our library, gym, cafeteria, kitchen, and main office area will be renovated.
During the 2017-2018 school year our school will receive a 13 classroom addition. As a school community, we are dedicated to providing a safe, culturally diverse environment that promotes academic excellence and life-long learning. Our teachers use a variety of developmentally appropriate instructional strategies to accommodate many different learning styles and give our students opportunities to develop their ability to work cooperatively.
As the Mighty Mustangs, our students are involved in a variety of activities designed to enhance their instructional program. In addition to our new Epson Brightlink Projectors, we have technology that is upgraded to include iPads, Chromebooks, laptops, and interactive responders. We added several new laptops to our inventory this year. We are also an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) candidate school awaiting our authorization as a World IB School.
