Southeastern where to begin....Well, we have known lots about this school in our family. Our sister/Aunt went to this school as well. She then moved up to Hickory and Graduated. We have seen the rise and fall of many people and things at this school. We have seen many Principal come and go as well. But one thing still remains the same. That is the lack of communication with the school and the parents. The teachers and staff there seem to think that the parents most times don't know what they are doing or know what is best for their chils/children. When I go to school there I feel like I am going into a Prison. You are watched everyday you are in there and sometimes you are followed as well. they look at you like you have/will commit a crime up in the school there. We have had nothing but issue after issue while attending here. Wish I had never moved into this school system/area. Should of stayed where we were already. But I guess you live and you learn. I just was hoping for things to have improved by now but some people like to keep things running as usual. Which isn''t the best of things!

Southeastern should be rated a 9 or 10. My son previously attended this school but is now in another school district since we moved. The school he attends now is rated a 10 on here and is NOT as good. Southeastern not only has skilled teachers, a friendly and active principal, and involved parents - it also has a full-time art teacher, music teacher, counselor, nurse, and a great GATE program! Students are lucky to attend this fantastic school. We miss it.

I have two children currently attending this school and I am very happy with the results so far. Children are challenged individually and as a group. Only great thinks to say about the teachers.

I have four children who have attended Southeastern Elementary. They have gone on to have extremely successful middle school and high school years. I have nothing but positve remarks for their teachers, staff and administration. They go out of their way to involve the parents and the children get a first class education. The communication between staff and parents is awesome!

I have had nothing but good experiences with my two boys education at Southeastern. My youngest is a special needs child. The staff has been such a great help, getting services and help for my son. My oldest went through preschool to fifth grade. He is now an all honors student at Hickory Middle school. Southeastern is small enough to give you a small school feeling but large enough to offer your child every opportunity

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.
