Welcome to Ms. Torres!
We are happy to welcome Ms. Melissa Torres as our new music teacher! As a product of Fairfax County Public Schools (Cardinal Forest ES and Lake Braddock Secondary), she is excited to now be teaching in FCPS!
Ms. Torres is a recent graduate of George Mason University with a Bachelor of Music degree in Education. In her spare time, she enjoys many hobbies – the ukulele, Tae Kwon Do, jigsaw puzzles, and tv binging! An interesting fact about Ms. Torres is that her family is half Mexican and half Bolivian.

Fairfax County Public Schools has engaged with external researchers to examine our Advanced Academic Programs (AAP) in grades 3-8, with a focus on Level IV services. As one of several data collections in the review, researchers are seeking input from all parents of students in grades 3-8 through an online survey. Individual survey responses will be anonymous, will go directly to the researchers, and will not be viewed by FCPS staff.
Responses will be used by the researchers to craft recommendations for program improvements that will be shared with the FCPS School Board in late March. Parents are asked to complete the survey only one time, even if they have multiple children in grades 3-8. The survey is expected to start being sent directly to parent emails by mid-February and will close on February 28, 2020, in order to give researchers time to analyze results for their final report in March of 2020. There will be a School Board work session on March 24, 2020 with the final report.
