Sleepy Hollow ES is an exceptional neighborhood school. The administration and faculty truly care about the educational growth and character of every student who walks through the door. In a world of constant change they recognize what is necessary to allow our children to soar to their greatest heights. Through intervention and enrichment they are raising the bar for every child and cheering them on all the way. Sleepy Hollow ES is a caring community, devoted to the hard work it takes to meet every need of a child in order for them to meet their highest potential. I'm proud to have my children attend such a school.

This size and administration of this school lend it a wonderful small town community vibe. A great place for children to enjoy learning and feel at home. My kids have moved on, but this school will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Sleepy Hollow is an excellent school. The small size of the school population allows teachers and administrators to know every child in the school. Excellent administration and many excellent teachers. There is a broad range of extra curricular activities that are offered and the SACC program is superb. I am pleased to send my child to Sleepy Hollow.

Sleepy Hollow's unique scheduling system allows for small-group instruction and for students to interact with more than just their homeroom teacher. The teachers are caring, and there's a good mix of experienced and newer teachers. There are many school activities and traditions that make the place a real community. Our family has been at the school 8+ years, and many of the teachers and staff have been there the entire time. We love Sleepy Hollow!

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.
