School Summary

Clermont Elementary School is a Professional Learning Community with a tradition of Academic Excellence for over 40 years. Our school strives to prepare students for life and work in the 21st century and has received recognition by the state of Virginia for its educational achievements. "The mission of Clermont Elementary School is to create and maintain a safe learning environment that encourages high academic performance for every student by offering them a rigorous and relevant education supported by partnerships with parents and the community."

Our C.A.R.E Character Ed program provides our students with a model for good citizenship and civic responsibility by teaching the true meaning of our four core values: Caring, Acceptance, Responsibility and Effort .

The FCPS Program of Studies at each grade level offers active learning and differentiated instruction that meet the individual learning styles of each student.  Advanced Academics, Advanced Math, FLES Chinese, Young Scholars, ESOL and Special Education programs help provide academic rigor and instructional support as needed.

In order to prepare our students for 21st century careers, Clermont has made technology  a focus for both our students and teachers. iPads, Smart boards, mobile labs, classroom computers, flip camera’s and our digital lab make it easy for teachers to continuously integrate technology with student instruction.

At Clermont, we are committed to educating the whole child. Our specialist teachers are committed to working collaboratively with our classroom teachers to integrate music, art and fitness into grade level Programs of Study. Students can elect to participate in chorus, band and strings instruction in grades 4-6. Our chorus performs annually at community events and at our winter and spring concerts along with band and strings.

Physical Fitness is a family focus at Clermont. In collaboration with our Lee District Recreation Center, we schedule  fall and spring fitness events, to promote Mrs. Michelle Obama's ,"Let's Move !" initiative to promote healthy lifestyles among school age children.  At family fitness events,  students and their parents participate in: an obstacle course, aquatics, soft play and dance activities during the course of an evening. What better way to model the importance of fitness than by providing parents and children with the opportunity to engage in physical activities together.

A strong sense of community spirit is woven into our school culture. Our parents and business partnerships support our students, teachers and staff,  by providing increased resources that support enrichment, remediation, and extracurricular programs and clubs. Throughout the school year, the Clermont PTA enriches and expands our students’ learning through their support of  the learning garden, grade level field trips and school assemblies.

Clermont Elementary School is "Where Lifelong Learning Begins”!
