I've only had experience with this school since Dec. 09 but they have made the transition for the kids wonderful and easy. The principal made it a point to tell me how wonderful it was having my 2 girls join them here. I was surprised that he knew who they were let alone who I was since I'd only met the Vice principal - it was nice to know that he knew his students! The office secretary is always pleasant even though she is also always extremely busy! We've really enjoyed integrating to this school and look forward to Chilhowie High School next year for one of the girls!

The faculty and staff are wonderful to work with and are dedicated to producing well adjusted, well educated children. They are open to help with any problem. Students feel comfortable in talking to the principal and the vice-principal. There are counselors and nurses on staff and readily available.

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.
