School History

Bren Mar Park Elementary School opened on September 9, 1957. Did you know that our school was the first school in Fairfax County to be built with pre-made parts? The original walls were made in Norfolk, Virginia then trucked to Fairfax County and assembled like a big jigsaw puzzle. Back then our school only had ten classrooms and just 300 students. Today we have more than 540!
