Description from 2019 Annual Report

"Agnor-Hurt is a comprehensive elementary school that serves children from 4.1 square miles of Albemarle County along the Rio Road/Hydraulic Road corridor between the city limits of Charlottesville and Albemarle High School. Our core purpose is to establish a community of young learners and learning through building relationships, creating relevance, and holding to high levels of rigor for each and every child every single day. Like other elementary schools in our division, we use the Virginia Standards of Learning as our core content and design powerful learning experiences that engage children around their interests, have high expectations for each child, and identify practices that are holding children back from learning. Our school serves children who speak 10 different languages and have family origins in 15 different countries. Just over half of our students are economically disadvantaged. Nearly one-quarter of our students identify as African-American/ Black, and another 23% identify as Hispanic/Latino. Approximately 40% of our students identify as White."
