Education

Fairfax County has been perennially rated one of the best public school systems in the country. [1] Vienna is home to one high school, one middle school, and six elementary schools. However, of all the schools Vienna students attend, only four elementary schools: Cunningham Park, Louise Archer, Marshall Road, and Vienna Elementary are actually located in the official town limits.


The music program at James Madison High School boasts an award-winning marching band and color guard, two symphonic bands, jazz band, orchestra, and chorus. Their Varsity Baseball team has won 6 Liberty District Regular Season Titles, 4 Liberty District Tournament Championships, 1 state title (2002). Thoreau Middle School is the only middle school in Vienna. Thoreau shares a class with Kilmer Middle School and Longfellow Middle School. All three schools have accelerated programs for students that are determined to be "Gifted and Talented." Close to Madison sit the six elementary schools: Flint Hill, Louise Archer (which also has a GT center program), Marshall Road, Vienna Elementary, Wolftrap, and Cunningham Park. Each of these schools feed into Thoreau, Kilmer or Longfellow, and then James Madison High School, Oakton High School (just outside Vienna on the border with Oakton, with a Vienna address), or George C. Marshall High School (in Falls Church). Because of the large influx of new residents in the last decade, the classes of '09, '10, and '11 at these regional high schools are expected to be the largest over the next ten years.
