I love all the staff they make you feel like your family.

A.S.Rhodes is a great school. The staff and faculty truly care about the students. They have a book club for certain grade levels and they make learning fun. I have three children that have gone to this school. We love it!!!

The physical school itself is in need of improvement, but the Principle and Teachers are outstanding. They more than make up for the surroundings! I could not ask for more caring and knowledgable staff. My child loves school and loves to learn!

Given the limited funding available in Warren County, A.S. Rhodes is an outstanding school! It is a very close-knit 'family', and the kids all seem to get very individualized attention. The small size of the school is a definite asset, and the staff is great! It would be nice to see more extracurricular activities, if the school district could afford it.

My son attends A.S. Rhodes and we've enjoyed it and have not had any problems. He's always enjoyed his teachers and so have we. One of the things I like about the school is the size. It's nice because the teachers know all the kids by first names and any siblings most of the time too.

I have two daughters who attend A.S. Rhodes. After attending private school for a year and a half, we were welcomed at A.S. Rhodes with open arms. My children have accelerated in many areas thanks to the teachers and staff at A.S. Rhodes. Keep up the good work!

I think A.S. Rhodes is a wonderful school. It is a wonderful school and my daughter has learned so much and she is just in first grade! She has a wonderful teacher and it amazes me the things they are already learning. I think the parents that left bad reviews on here seriously need to give the school a real chance and quit being so snobbish!! Keep up the great work, A.S. Rhodes and thanks for teaching my child so many great things!

this is my childs first year there and i am not happy with the school at all! the teacher has poor communication skills,and has lost my child once. when brought to the principal's attention he said it would be taken care of and nothing like this would happen again...but still nothing has been done. my child does not seemed to be chalenged in her class and gets board and they do nothing to help. instead they make her seem as a problem child. i am concidering taking her out of this school all together.

We moved here from GA in hopes of a better education for our kids. Our transition period was in Frederick County and the school there was much, much better. We have not been happy with this school and are now considering a private school at a great expense. My highly intelligent son is not challenged enough here, and they do nothing to help that situation. The communication from the teacher is poor, and the principal has yet to offer any assistance as well. He has always enjoyed school & learning until this year. His homework is laughable and is basically skills he learned in kindergarten. I was told my many (too late as we already started building) that Warren County schools are horrible . . . now I know firsthand. We may as well move back to GA where things were more affordable and send him to private school there.

Great School. Smallest in the county. My child loves her teachers, and is doing great, I hate the fact this is her last year. I am not looking forward to the Warren County Middle 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.
