I attended Annandale Terrace Elementary School! The teacher's I had were amazing. I am a newly accepted freshman to Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. This proves that you don't need to move far away for better education. This school has been cozy and comfortable and the intercession classes are great...(do they still have that?) :)


Posted February 20, 2009

I can't really complain about the school I just wish they would give them daily homework on each subject. My son is in second grade and I think he can handle a little more than whats given to him now. As for the teachers so far they have all been caring and helpful, However the office can have a little more compasion when dealing with concerned parents with questions. There is 1 lady in the office who is wonderful I'm not sure of her name but she is Hispanic.

The staff at Annandale Terrace lives by the words 'Believe, Achieve, Succeed'. The staff and community work closely to nurture students and promote character, confidence, and an apprectiation for the gift of education. Students study core subjects as well as music, p.e., art, and technology. The school reaches out to and embraces our students' families. The parent center is often busy and full of action.

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.
