As a parent of young children who will attend this school in the future, I have overall a great impression of this school. The office is run carefully and the teachers seem to be very good yet a little overwhelmed at times: it is very difficult to have an over-sized class of 30 or more 6th and 7th graders...especially when you are a substitute teaching pre-algebra. The principal is a very organized, fastidious professional who takes her job seriously.

The school appearance is wonderful! The Teachers for the most part are good. Some as in all schools I suppose have just been teaching entirely too long and are lazy and don't really care about "teaching" and just pass out work without actually TEACHING it. The principal is even worse and I would just assume call her useless. If you want something done don't expect her to take care of it or follow through on anything! She is by far the worst principal I have ever encountered in my 13 years of parenting! Perhaps a lesson in achievement would help the teachers and the principal of this school! It should be about helping the students acheive, not working against them!

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.
