This school is one of the fastest improving schools in the state. The teachers there really care about the students and the scores are on the way up. The 5th grade writing scores climbed 32% this year to 91% pass rate. The students are excited about being there. Go Bobcats!

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.
