This is my daughters first year @ GES as a Kintergardner! I met her teachers including her Art teacher and I was very impressed. Ive heard good things about her main teacher Mrs. Burgess. When I met her, I sensed that she cared about her students and noticed she was really patient during orientation.

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.
