Jouett Elementary School, in eastern Louisa, has implemented the highly-regarded Responsive Classroom curriculum, which develops the rhetorical and conversational skills of students through daily interactions. In fact, 83% of our young Traiblazers are reading at-or-above grade level as of 2020! Jouett Elementary School has also recently implemented a FLEX Library system, allowing for more opportunities for collaboration and critical thinking across the curriculum.

Through the tribe system. our Traiblazers at Jouett Elementary School encourage one another and work together, building up school spirit in the process! Take a stroll through Jouett Elementary School, and it’s easy to see the school truly lives up to its motto: Be Legendary!

Opening in 2010, Moss-Nuckols Elementary School is the newest school in the division, serving the quickly-growing Zion Crossroads area. Similar to the tribal system at Jouett Elementary School, Moss-Nuckols Elementary School features a unique learning system called The Dens of Determination! Our Foxes have truly bought into the strategy, which has brought a sense of pride and ownership throughout the building. In fact, you’ll want to keep a close eye on televisions throughout the school, which display students who are achieving points for their den through positive actions and hard work! Moss-Nuckols Elementary School also features a student-led garden, where Foxes raise various crops such as lettuce, potatoes, and more! The vegetables are then served in the school cafeteria, which brings learning to life and exposes students to new foods all at the same time!

The August 2011 earthquake may have destroyed the previous school building at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School, but the resulting challenges could not shake the heart of its dedicated faculty and staff. With its new building opening in 2014, our Patriots now roam the halls of a state-of-the-art school that is bright, warm, and inviting to all! For five years now, Thomas Jefferson Elementary School has been fully accredited, and the Patriot Pride has never been higher!

The school also regularly hosts Buddy Days, through which our older Patriots mentor their younger counterparts!

One way is through the school’s Career Store, a center within the school that includes child-friendly versions of restaurants, construction zones, a doctor’s office, and more! The center helps students learn math, science, and economics while strengthening their social skills. And though Trevilians Elementary School may be the school division’s smallest in terms of enrollment, it’s still a headline-getter!
