I think that it's great. My daughter is very smart, and they continue to challenge her daily. The teachers go above and beyond to ensure both parents and students are informed and doing well.

Great school from what I have observed so far. The new principal is very hands on and the faculty present alot of enthusiasm and are very attentive to detail. Great team environment in place. Teachers are very responsive to email and telephone calls in as far as returning them. Most importantly a caring perception is presented.

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.
