I go to Battlefiled now and I think it's the best school in the county! The teachers and students are awesome. All of the teachers only want whats best for us and help us with anything we need. I'm in 8th grade now and I really don't want to leave this school :) I love it!!

I have been at Battlefield for two years now and love it! The teacher's are wondeful and I have a blast in each one of my classes, except for PE! I hate PE but I love everything else.

Two of my children went to this school twelve years apart. The school offers the same high quality education now as it did back in the early nineties. There are programs to suit every child's needs together with true encouragement to improve and participate. The school offers quality teaching and leadership and teaches the children to strive to achieve their personal best. Children really enjoy attending this school.

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.
