All four of my daughters have attended this school so I have experience with most of the teachers and the administration. I have found them to be caring, professional and truly exceptional. I have always been pleased with the teachers and staff and my daughters still stay in touch with their favorites. It was a wonderful experience for my children and they were well prepared for the high school. Communication was frequent and we always felt that our children's best interest were a priority. We are delighted with the education they received.

This school is exceptional. I cannot think of one solid complaint and until this year (7th), my son has been in private school. We have found the personnel to be more professional, more compassionate and more knowledgeable than any of the private schools he attended. Ms Mitchell, the new Principal, is kind and cares very much about the students and the success of the school. My only wish is that my son could stay there until he graduates! Kudos to Stone!!

Stone Middle School is an excellent school. Communication with parents by admin and the teachers exceeds my expectations. I especially appreciate periodic grade reports sent by teachers keeping me abreast of missing assignments and overall academic performance. The principal frequently emails parents regarding upcoming activities, tests, etc. The curriculum is challenging and prepares students for high school. Teachers are willing to stay after school to help students when needed. Discipline mimics that of a private school with little to no student discipline issues. I don't know why any one living in this school district would want to pay for private education. Great choice! Great school!

If your child has special needs, look elsewhere. Stone staff is not prepared to educate children with special needs even when they have well-developed IEP's. After 4 awful months of dealing with the school's incompetence and unresponsiveness, I am transferring my child.

Great school. I exchanged from a terrible private school, and this school is excellent! Great teachers. :)

Very organized and well run operation. There is no reason why your child should not excel at this school. Nice mix of veteran and newer blood in the teaching corps. I hope they have another successful 20 years.

I felt the science and math streams were ok - could have been better.. French Language was average. I felt the principal's leadership was good on account that we did not hear of any issues / problems at the school

I was a teacher for two years at Stone. Mr. Gaudreault is an excellent principal and knows how to run the school. Although he is an imposing presence, he is nevertheless approachable and unfailingly professional. He also has a warm sense of humor. Faculty turnover is low, as most are happy to remain in their teaching positions. The vast majority of students are respectful, polite, hard-working and bright. I enjoyed strong support from both parents and the administrative team. It was a true privilege to have worked at Stone. Go Panthers!

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.
