Christiansburg Middle School is a really good school. There are exellent teachers, great principals, and great after school activities. They are very strong school in sports and overall, a wonderful school!


Posted January 26, 2009

This is an excellent school. Send your kids here. Especially if your in seventh grade cause the teachers are very nice in seventh grade. except maybe some that are more diciplined, then you'd better'd do what they say. But those teachers are nice still.

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.
