Parry McCluer Middle School is excellent! The teaching staff is dedicated, hardworking, and supportive. They should be commended on all their hard work! Hurray for wonderful teachers!

Posted October 9, 2007

Indeed, leadership is the core of the problem in this school. A supportive community, small school size, excellent and dedicated teachers, but a principal that is unwilling to be open opportunities for improvement and change.

It is a small school with many positive points but could be much, much better with a positive approach.

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.
