School History

Lees Corner Elementary School was established in 1986 and was named after the family of William Fairfax Lee, the original owners of Sully Plantation and the school site, first referred to as the Sully site. A donated bell contributes to our sense of community during special events and outdoor student council assemblies and distinguishes Lees Corner.

The Lees Corner faculty, parents, and community are proud of our collaboration and cooperation, which have resulted in new directions for monitoring, assessing, and increasing student achievement. A pilot program entitled PAIRS (Partners Assisting Individuals Realize Success), an early childhood education program, has been developed to use trained community members to enable each child to reach his or her potential.

Lees Corner has been known for the quality of its instructional programs and faculty and has focused on expanding the integration and application of technology throughout each child's learning experiences. Our current emphasis is on multimedia, telecommunications, and electronic mail.

Lees Corner embraces an inclusionary model for students with special needs and provides services based on each individual child's needs. As the Lees Corner student population continues to grow, an active PTA, parent volunteer program, and expanding business partnership provide support to the caring and positive learning environment at Lees Corner. As a learning community, we are committed to achieving excellence and to providing educational programs based on current research to prepare our students for lifelong learning and achievement.
