I like this school my children had good teachers and Mrs. Tucker the principle is great with the children. There are some teachers I wouldn't recommend but if you are a good parent and stay on top of things everything will be fine.

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.
