Fairfax County Public Schools
FCPS administers public schools in Fairfax County and the City of Fairfax. With over 185,000 students enrolled, FCPS is the tenth largest public school system in the U.S., and the largest in the Baltimore-Washington and Northern Virginia Metropolitan Area. The most notable commitment that Fairfax County makes to its school system is the allocation of approximately 53% of its fiscal budget to the school system. Including state and federal government contributions, along with citizen and corporate contributions, this brings the 2015 fiscal budget for the school system to $2.3 billion.  With almost 200 schools and centers, and over 25,000 employees, FCPS is a significant part of the regional economy.  Fairfax County residents and businesses expect a first-in-class public school system, and FCPS strives every day, in every classroom, to provide every child the very best.
