this the worst school ive ever experienced. bullying in school at and on the bus is daily norm there with the passive staff letting it go on.to the point my son was going to harm himself.overcrowded buses cafeteria and classrooms playground as well. unfriendly staff don't even speak to you when you enter the office.. am taking my kids out. Over 750 kids buses out of control principals admit it. don't send your kids there.

My family relocated here from out of state the day before school started. What could have been a choatic, horrible experience was just the opposite. The staff was well trained, friendly and unflappable. The teacher that my son has is compassionate, caring and very responsive to his uneasiness in a new school, new state and new surroundings. The curriculum is well defined and executed. I don't think that I could be MORE pleased with this staff and school.

The academic programs couldn't be better. They place high prioity on technolgy. The art program is well recieved by students. The Parent involvemet is beeter than I have seen. Any given day you can find a parent volunteer working at the school. The PTA board is the harderst working group I have ever met.

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.
