Horrible place. I feel so sorry for the children who attend there. This town is very backwards and mean to anyone new, bullies are rampant. Run from here, don't walk.

My name is Hilleary Downer. I am in 6th grade here at CMS and it is the best school in the district. FYI- I am in Ms. Hanna's homeroom.

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.
