Virginia distinguished Purple Star School for supporting military connected students

Our mission is to provide a quality education through shared responsibility in a safe supportive environment for all students to meet the challenges of a global society. We are “Committed to Excellence”, and we work hard to make the site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and other members of our community.

Welcome to Old Donation School, a fully accredited school!

We are the school division’s full-time school for intellectually gifted students in grades 2-8. As such, we are committed to the development of the scholar and artist.
During their time here, our students will work alongside caring and capable teachers, staff, and administrators while tackling a rigorous instructional program. We set high expectations for our Rising Tides, and we see them excel through their academics, their leadership and in their service to others.

This year's school-wide theme is a quote from Martin Luther King, Jr.: "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'" This message has been selected to be an inspiration for gifted children. . . they have tremendous potential to make an impact on the world around them. The ideas of giving of oneself for others and of being empathetic are to be encouraged, developed, and celebrated in this learning environment.  This theme directly encourages students to seek ways in which they can go forth and make a positive difference in the lives of others.
