Pyramid Organization

Region 5 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 5, the high schools at the top of the pyramids are Chantilly, Fairfax, Marshall, Westfield, and Woodson. The Region 5 Pyramid Map shows which middle schools and elementary schools feed into each high school.
