My son goes to Kindergarden and he has a beautiful teacher in everyway the way she takes care of my son and the other kids is just wonderful. Hope my son will have more teachers like her though-out the time he has left to go to school
—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 27, 2004

Jan. 2004 My son is in the Spanish immmersion program( 2nd grade) and we love it. Although neither my husband or myself are spanish speaking, he is excelling academically and he enjoys school. Principal Camarda is doing a great job in restoring good spirit among the teachers and I believe he is working hard to raise the image of the school. Parental involvement is still low though- many students have 2 working parents.

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.
