Worst school in Spotsylvania county. I recommended no one go here. The principal Dr. Wright has the worst attitude with parents and some students. There are way better high schools in this county this is not a good school

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course tests to assess students in reading, writing, math, science and history/social science subjects at the end of each course, regardless of the student's grade level. The SOL End-of-Course tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia.
