So far, so good ... I love the staff, everyone is always friendly and helpful. Principal is always polite and positive. Students are just like kids anywhere else, but bullying is not tolerated. Peanut free School! I could go on and on. Sting Rays Rock!!

The Teachers & staff are very friendly. Learning is a top priorty. They have a rewards program.Kids earn fish by being good in return they cash in fish for a prize. This teaches children to work hard & they will get rewarded. I love Occohannock Elementry!

I consider this school a great place for my child and I feel with the few problems my husband and I have had are normal child and school problems.

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.
