I think that the school is very supportive of its student body. The teachers are very helpful. My student who is currently a Junior in high school, was given a great with her honors curriculum.

I'm still watching. I have a 6th grade student that has been exemplary, until now. She got The Presidential award, last year at SRI. A great school. But suddenly she has a D, and a C. I get a mixed message from the staff. Be involved as long as I don't have anything to do with her education. Be there for her, but don't be here. I'm not impressed so far. If it change I'll be back to say so. B.

IRMS is wonderful. I have a sixth grade daughter attending and while she is in the AVID program and it's tough, I feel that she is being challenged daily. This school is a demonstration site for this exceptional program and I know that she is being prepared for high school and college. The teachers have their hands full and it's not up to them to teach a child how to have the right attitude. They can only teach so much, the rest starts at home.

I am a parent of a child in indian river middle school. He is in the 7th grade. Last year was the first year ever to have problems w/ my childs conduct.(Normal at 13 years old.) Never anything serious but the teachers actions over the months gave my son a terrible outlook on respect and encouragment, goals, and priorities. We need less activities for parents after school and put the efforts into our future, our children.

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.
