This is one of the best schools I've ever been to. All the teachers are nice. Mr. Blaylock is a cool history teacher. I love Mrs. Myers she's my english teacher and my homeroom teacher she makes everything cool. Mrs. Vande Linde is the coolest hummanitie/reading teacher you will ever have. Mrs. White is a great math teacher she really explains things really well. And finally Mrs. Callahan tells us things more than once so that we will remember to do it. The falctay and staff are really nice! I recomend this school I'm sure your children will love this school! Go Starz!

I attend this school and it is very good. The teachers are nice and try to make learning fun.The principal is also very sweet and RMMS offers a variety of sports and activities. RMMS is also big on technology which helps a lot. They also have dances, pep rallies and games to make each day interesting.Even the cafeteria food is good.My 6th and currently 7th grade years have been pleasant, thanks to Read Mountain.

I have a child attending this school. Whatever happend to equal displine for students regardless of race, sex, or wealth? I find this school lacking greatly for principal leadership. This school is ran much like a prison instead of a school with a healthy environment for the students. Someone needs to step in and try to get the administrative staff heading in the correct direction. The students will continue to be the ones that will lose regardless of their efforts.

Based on my child's experience so far at this school, I would rate it as only average. The teaching is very 'traditional,' with heavy use of page by page textbooks and whole-class lecture-type lessons.

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.
