Nokesville School History: TNS values its Nokesville legacy and the strong tradition of community involvement and support. Many of its students are grandchildren of graduates of the original Nokesville Elementary School and/or Brentsville District High School.

Nokesville Elementary School has been housed in at least four school buildings and known by several different names. The Nokesville Village School opened in 1870 in a log cabin on Wilkins Corner, now the junction of Nokesville Road and Fitzwater Drive. By 1833, it had moved to a new one-room schoolhouse located at the northeast corner of Fitzwater Drive. That one-room school served the community for 25 years until a new two-room building was erected in 1908.

The building on Fitzwater Drive (above) opened its doors on September 5, 1929, as Brentsville District High School. At that time, the school housed grades one through 11.

A new Brentsville District High School was opened in 1964 and at that time, the older building reverted to the name of Nokesville Elementary School, the name by which was known until September 2015. The new TNS was constructed on Aden Road next to Brentsville District High School to replace the elementary school and to accommodate the middle school students in Nokesville. The Nokesville School K-8 opened on September 2, 2015.
