Welcome to George Carr Round Elementary School!
Round Elementary was built in 1986, and is one of five elementary schools in the city. The school is fully accredited and offers special programs including ESOL (English for Speakers of other Languages), Gifted & Talented and Virginia Cooperative Preschool. Enrichment programs include after-school tutoring as well as many extra-curricular activities and sports. A favorite in the school is the many enrichment assemblies that are offered by the PTO during the year. Students may also participate in the Broadcast Center, Technology Club, Basketball, Chorus, the SCA, Junior First Lego League, Girls on the Run and any of the many Spirit Night activities. During March, Youth Art Month, students are provided various activities in arts and music, culminating with a "live art show" at an evening assembly. At Round, students are engaged in lessons that will prepare them for their futures.
George Carr Round
George Carr Round was a Union Army Signal Corps veteran and lawyer from New York. He, perhaps more than any other single person, helped create the town of Manassas. In 1868, after the Civil War, Round decided to seek his fortune in Virginia and settled in Manassas. He quickly became a strong advocate of education and was appointed the town's first superintendent of public schools. He also served as a member of the Virginia General Assembly, as a charter member of the Manassas Town Council, and as town clerk. Round organized the 1911 National Jubilee of Peace and was an advocate of the Manassas National Battlefield Park. By his death in 1918, Round had become one of the town's most beloved citizens, known for his encouragement of newcomers. The thriving modern community of Manassas is a living legacy to this gifted man.
