Welcome to John M. Gandy Elementary School, home of the
Gandy Tigers! Our staff works diligently to create a safe,
caring environment conducive to teaching and learning.
Gandy’s rigorous curriculum and commitment to academic
excellence form the basis of our instructional programs. The
school’s programs are accredited by the Virginia Department
of Education and the Southern Association of Colleges and
Our school is very fortunate to have many parent volunteers
and community-based business partners. We greatly
appreciate their involvement! An open door policy, in which
parents and patrons are always welcome to visit and to
provide input, is maintained.
Gandy affords children many opportunities to prepare
themselves for a successful future. It is our hope that we
enable all children
their dreams by empowering them with knowledge and
instilling in them a sense of pride and perseverance.
