U.S. News & World Report recently ranked Kingston Elementary and Old Donation School as the No. 1 elementary and middle schools in Virginia. Old Donation School, which has students in grades two through eight and is the home of the Edward E. Brickell Academy for Advanced Academics & Arts, was also ranked as the No. 2 elementary school in the state.
Construction began on the combined Landstown Middle School/Landstown Elementary School in early 1991.
Landstown Middle School, "Home of the Lancers" has a capacity of over 1,500 students. It is a two-story building with each grade level a separate wing and most exploratory classes in the fourth wing. The school is host of a Spanish-Immersion program where core classes are taught in Spanish. It also hosts the AVID program which is the Advancement Via Individual Determination program designed to enhance our AVID students college potential.
Landstown Middle first opened its doors in the Fall of 1992. Landstown is a unique physical structure in that it is the only school that is conjoined with an elementary school. The two schools share one cafeteria that serves both the elementary and middle school students' breakfast and lunch.
