Honestly, I am questioning many of these reviews with 4 or 5 stars. I have had a horrible experience with this school. Most of the teachers here are nice and pleasant but it's the administrative staff that I worry about. The principle does not seem engaged with the students and their academic success. My child tends to have trouble in school and much of it has to do with his struggle with impulse. The teacher was nice and told me she would allow an evaluation to take place but I have had so much push-back from the Administrator staff. I understand that it costs the school a great deal of money when doing an IEP (they get the money from grants), but it's for the benefit of the child! I just want to ensure that my child is getting the specialized instruction he needs in order to be confident in school. I want to give them the benefit of a doubt- but it's been years and I am starting to feel that if your child has any type of disorder, language barrier, or disability- you're in for a world of grief here, good luck, you will need it.

My daughter and nephew goes to this school for three years now. It is the worst school ever! If I had a choice to change her school, I would in a heart beat. If you have a choice, take my word as a parent and choose a diff. school. Ms. Almedina-Cabrera, Annette is the worst principal I have ever encountered. There are lots of bullying that goes on in that school the no adult seems to care!

The school's motto "character counts" is a theme that is prevalent throughout the school from the professional staff to the well-mannered and very diverse student body. I am pleased with the amount of attention my daughter gets in the decent sized classrooms (18-21 students) and like that the principal is no-nonsense. The choral, strings, and after school programs are a big plus too.

My daughter has been at this school two years and we love it! I recommend going to the Fairfax County School district site to get a wealth of the most up to date information(www.fcps.edu) This school is incredibly diverse and that is a definite strength.

My son went to this school for two years, its a wonderful school, nice and prof. staff. If you have choice to chose, I would strongly recomend Weyanoke.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
