I'm reading these reviews and dying laughing. This school is one of the worse school out there. I feel sorry for these "parents" who think this school is so wonderful, they have obviously never been around a "good" school.

I love this School I have 3 children attending there now. I have had a great time meeting with teachers. Love both Principals. I only wish the lunches had more fresh cooked food. Also they need funding to get airconditioning and heating system updated.

The school is okay. I have yet to speak with a teacher at this school that seems to have a real desire to actually teach. Principal is great person though, kids seem to love him.

This is a wonderful school. The principal and assistant principal are amazing, they actually care about the students and the students absolutely love them back! I haven't had much experience with the teachers yet since my son is in pre-k, but am very pleased with the staff I have met so far!

School is good and so are some of the teachers. Principal is young and arrogant.

my daughter has attended now for 3 years, every day has been a blessing. The staff and faculty are the most involved of any school I've seen and always go the extra mile to benefit the children.

I love this school. My son is currently in his first year and I was really surprised by how much the faculty and staff love and care for the students and how friendly everyone is. There have been many mornings when I have seen the principal walking children to and from the buses and cars, greeting them and holding umbrellas when it's raining. You just don't get that anywhere else.

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.
