LMS AAP Center Will Begin in the
2018-2019 School Year
Lanier Middle School will open an Advanced Academic Program (AAP) Center beginning in the fall of 2018, with providing rising 7th and 8th grade students to attend Rocky Run ES up until the year 2020. With the recommendation from the City of Fairfax School Board, the Fairfax County Public Schools School Board voted unanimously on January 11 to open the AAP Center at Lanier.
The School Board adopted the following pupil assignment plan:
- Fall 2018: Lanier-based rising 7th and 8th grade AAP center-eligible students currently assigned to Rocky Run Middle School would be afforded the option to attend the new Lanier MS Level IV Center or their current Level IV center at Rocky Run MS.
- Fall 2019: Lanier-based rising 7th grade students currently assigned to Rocky Run MS will be required to attend Lanier’s Level IV center. Rising 8th grade students in fall 2019 would be afforded the option to attend Lanier Level IV center or their current Level IV center at Rocky Run MS.
- Fall 2020: Lanier-based rising 7th and 8th grade center-eligible students will be required to attend the Lanier Level IV Center.
The AAP Center at Lanier Middle School will ensure pyramid continuity for many students who will attend Fairfax High School. In addition both Providence Elementary School and Daniels Run Elementary School will offer Local Level Four AAP services at their schools. This will allow students within these schools to stay within their pyramid and attend their base school with their neighborhood and be able to take advanced placement courses.
The FCPS school board praised LMS principal Lenart for her hard work for the past two years in preparing her staff and school for the opening of the center.
