As a parent of two kids going to GAES, I can't not thank the faculty and staff enough fir great education and love they are providing to our kids.. This is an old established school with great track record. I would recommend this school to any of my friends... GAES rocks!!!

As a former student of Glen Allen, I can't thank the faculty and staff enough for their hard work, support, and love for me as I went through all six grades. I am still thankful for the superlative education I received there. I couldn't have asked for better teachers. I realize the staff has probably changed by now, but Glen Allen ES has trained me well and as a senior in college, I am still thankful for the lessons I learned at GAES.

Glen Allen is a superlative school! My daughter started there as a kindergartner and I couldn t have asked for a better first school experience. Everything about our experience there was excellent, from the very first phone contact with the cheerful office staff to the end of the year activities. Glen Allen staff does a wonderful job of communicating with parents so you know what to expect, plus they are very accessible. My daughter had a fantastic time. She received a great education in all areas and her teacher worked closely with her on the equally important socialization skills. Not only that, but staff responded quickly and effectively with an IEP plan when my daughter was diagnosed with a medical problem that impacted her mobility. Parents are very welcome at the school and I loved having so many volunteer opportunities. I highly recommend Glen Allen!

Glen Allen Elementary School is a well rounded school. This a school that my children receive a great education and the foundation for healthly relationships. They support the child by realizing the value of familiy involvement while nourishing and encouraging families and the community in a very busy world.

The administration and faculty is wonderful. I have raised two boys with Glen Allen Elementary s help and they have grown to be considerate and well educated young men. Parents are ALWAYS WELCOME in the school and our parent volunteer group is huge. Lots of support and love :)

GAES is a great school because the staff is outstanding. All of the teachers make every child a part of their 'family' and take a vested interest in the individuals they are. These teachers truly teach because they care and not just because it is a job. I have never been in a school where there is so much happiness, pride, and love. No issue is to great and no idea is too small. The staff truly leads by example and because of that I think everyone should watch for future leaders to come from Glen Allen Elementary.

My kid moved from Springfield Park Elementary to Glen Allen elementary this year and we found Glen Allen Elementary is a great school. Teacher are very friendly and knowledgeable. The academic programs are great, lot of extra curricular activities, music, sports, chess club etc. My son really love his new school.

We have recently moved to the area. Our son has an IEP so we looked for schools that had special education programs. Glen Allen appeared to be the best in the area. Now that the school year is winding down we could not have been any happier with the principal, the teacher, and the education that our son has gotten at this school. We have been thrilled and look forward to next year as well!

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.
