CHS is an amazing school! There are so many career programs and quality classes offered there! There are tons of music programs, sports, and clubs for your child to choose from so everyone can be involved! Parents are welcomed and encouraged to be involved, and many parents accept this offer!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course tests to assess students in reading, writing, math, science and history/social science subjects at the end of each course, regardless of the student's grade level. The SOL End-of-Course tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. High school students must pass at least six SOL End-of-Course tests to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
