Ashburn Community School opened its doors ten years ago to relieve overcrowding in eight area schools on controlled enrollment. As a result, Ashburn is now culturally diverse and serves more than 400 students. Parents are encouraged to participate in the Local School Council (LSC), Parent Advisory Council (PAC), and Parent-Teacher Association (PTA).

We know that as parents you have lots of choices, we hope you choose Ashburn. Ashburn is a "Level 1" neighborhood school that offers a rigorous educational program, Fine and Performing Arts Curriculum, a Comprehensive Gifted Program, Pre-Algebra and Algebra for selected students, Biology and a wide variety of extracurricular activities to fit all your academic and social needs. Our Motto is "Moving from Good to Exceptional” and we are dedicated and committed to ensuring the best educational experience for you and your child. We invite you to come and volunteer and see Ashburn at its best. We want you to take advantage of these offerings, just as we hope to see you during the 2018-2019 school year.
