About Region 2

Region 2 is a true snapshot of the Fairfax County community. We are diverse--more than half of our students speak a language other than English at home. Thirty-four percent of our students are Hispanic; 32 percent are white; 21 percent are Asian; and 8 percent are black.

Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, a highly competitive magnet school that draws students from across Northern Virginia, is located in Region 2. Many of our elementary and middle schools are full-time Advanced Academic Program centers, and Belvedere Elementary is the only FCPS elementary school to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program.

The Marshall and Falls Church Academies offer career and technical education to students across FCPS. Falls Church offers exciting programs in health sciences and has been named a Governor's Health Science Academy by the Virginia Department of Education. Marshall offers programs that include information technology and engineering and is a Governor's STEM Academy.

Region 2 schools have a variety of experience to offer students and a myriad of activities. Check out some our videos (below) that highlight this school year's activities and achievements.

Pyramid Organization

Region 2 is organized into five geographically-based pyramids. At the top of each pyramid is one high school, followed by several middle schools and then many elementary schools. Each layer of the pyramid feeds into the one above.

In Region 2, the high schools at the top of the pyramids are Annandale, Falls Church, McLean, Marshall, and Justice. The Region 2 Pyramid Map shows which middle schools and elementary schools feed into each high school.

Role of Regional Assistant Superintendent

The focus of the Region office is to ensure educational excellence, equality, and student achievement in a safe learning environment.

The Regional Assistant Superintendent provides leadership, direction, and accountability for principals by monitoring school effectiveness through testing data, staff and parent surveys, and feedback from the school community.

Promoting collaboration among schools, parents and the School Board is an important role and, oftentimes, the Regional Assistant Superintendent will be involved in the resolution of difficult issues.

The Regional Assistant Superintendent is also responsible for evaluating principals and conducting searches for new principals, as well as developing and promoting positive, capable, and diverse school leaders.

Role of Executive Principal


The executive principal supports the region by providing principals with guidance and coaching and also works closely with assistant principals in the region by facilitating professional development throughout the school year.
