Region 3 serves the Edison, Hayfield, Lewis, Mount Vernon, and West Potomac Pyramids.
About Region 3
Surrounded by the Potomac River, Region 3 serves the students from Cameron Elementary in the north to Gunston Elementary in the south, and from Waynewood Elementary in the east to Crestwood Elementary in the west.
Region 3 also serves a large military population with the nearby Army installation of Fort Belvoir, located just off of Route 1. Fort Belvoir Elementary School has recently completed a renovation and expansion to serve the growing needs of the military families in the area.
Region 3 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 3, the high schools at the top of the pyramids are Edison, Hayfield, Lewis, Mount Vernon, and West Potomac. The Region 3 Pyramid Map shows which middle schools and elementary schools feed into each high school.
