Boiling Spring has the most caring teachers and the community is very interested in the future of every child that attends this school. My children are the fourth generation to attend out of our family. We would love to have many more children experience what they have to offer our community.

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.
