Great school with caring teachers. Wonderful, welcoming community atmosphere. My kids love going to school everyday.

Posted June 4, 2013

I haven't had any negative problems with this school, so far it has been a very warm and caring group of teachers. As with any place there is always room to improve and grow. We have just moved here 2 years ago and love this school!

Quite possibly the worst school ever. The teachers are gossiping biddies and parents are opting to homeschool.

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.
