Clintwood High is low rated academically. The teachers teach students to pass the SOL, nothing more. Football is all important and hardly any other extracurricular activities are offered. No assistance with college prep and planning are given. Students who go on to college are ill prepared. If you can avoid Dickenson County schools do so at all costs. What makes this a truly sad situation is that Clintwood is the best high school in the county.

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.
