School Notes

  • The custom built Reston Campus is nestled at the entrance to a quiet neighborhood at the border of Herndon and Reston, minutes from Great Falls. The consistent, nurturing environments of the carefully prepared classrooms encourage children to embrace learning. The campus features developmentally appropriate and secure play areas for toddlers through elementary in addition to a cozy and inviting library for children to enjoy everything from special presentations to storytime.
  • Toddler (18 months - 3 years)
  • Early Childhood (3 - 6 years)
  • The Early Childhood (3-6 years) program at the Reston Campus of The Boyd School offers children a unique opportunity to learn and grow. In addition to the core curriculum offered at the Early Childhood level at all of The Boyd School campuses, the custom-built Reston school nestled in the lush corner of the Herndon / Reston border creates a quiet & safe, neighborhood style learning environment. Located minutes from Great Falls, Dranesville just off of Rte. 7, the location of the school allows students to take short trips for enriching educational field trips. Located directly across from Fire Station 39, parents have an added sense of security and The Boyd School is proud to call the firefighters and EMS personnel friends.
  • The accredited Early Childhood program is instructed by credentialed teachers in class sizes below the average in Fairfax County. The individualized instruction of the Montessori program allows for children to advance at their own pace while developing a well-rounded, solid academic and social foundation.
  • The actively engaged parent group provides families with ample opportunity to be a part of the school community through morning social events and parent educational events. Parents often visit the classrooms to share their rich and diverse experiences, cultures, and wisdom. From cultural presentations such as playing of the Didjeridu to engaging children in an interactive bone density presentation, the parents have a long history of sharing with the school community.
  • Kindergarten (5 years prior to Dec. 31)
  • The accredited Kindergarten program at Reston provides children with a full academic school day (8:30a - 3:00p). Students work in the mixed-aged Montessori classroom in the morning and are guided towards educational outcomes. The individualized curriculum allows for children to advance at their own pace while developing a strong sense of independent learning techniques.
  • Because the children are in a mixed-aged environment in the morning, Kindergarten students develop a sense of added pride from beinging the oldest children in their classroom and often take on a roll of mentor to younger children.
  • The afternoon of the Kindergarten program consists of the children working in a small group setting (typically less than 8 children). This environment provides our Kindergarten student the unique opportunity to explore more in-depth concepts and develop small group skills. The expansive outdoor environment provides children with a unique opportunity to not only read and learn about their environment and nature but to experience the world beyond their classroom first hand.
  • Kindergarten students at the Reston campus take numerous field trips to take advantage of the rich opportunities of the DC Metropolitan area. Each year the Kindergarten students attend a number of age appropriate  musical performances by the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center and guided tours at the National Gallery of Art.
