This school is very good, and the AAP program is quiet challenging! So that is a good thing. I don't know why it is marked 5 out of 10 now, but hopefully it will increase


Posted January 24, 2011

My son is an eighth grader at Luther Jackson. He has had challenging courses taught by dedicated teachers. The teachers do a great job of putting the course work and homework on Blackboard. I find the electronic progress reports are informative, too. The principal is friendly and a good leader; the staff respects the students. The office staff is helpful, too. My son is involved with many after school activities, including Science Olympiad, National Junior Honor Society and Math Counts. He has benefited from the diversity of the student body as well. The PTA is active, although it is fairly small. My son will miss Luther Jackson when he leaves for high school next year.

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.
