After 1 year, I really wish we could change schools. The children are wild, but my real problem is with the faculty. It is run more like a prison than a school. I go up for lunch and volunteer often and personally witness the adults yelling and screaming at the children for what I deemed as minor things (forgetting to take a milk carton to the trash at lunch, talking) and this was the FIRST day off school. Trying to get into the school is crazy. Ms. Williams and her assistant both have attitude problems and make it difficult to go to lunch or take an item to the class. They also have times when no parents are allowed in the school such as during testing, but never send anything home to let you know. I showed up with lunch for my children and was turned around, and they wouldn't even let my kids get the lunch I had prepared for them. There are also numerous fights and rampant bullying. Nothing is done about it. Teachers also get into fights with parents and students! We are selling our house and moving so we can get our children in a better school. Do not send your children here if you have a choice. Looks pretty from the outside, but it is complete chaos inside!

This school is horrible. The teachers have no control over any of the students. There are daily fights between the students and the teachers and school leadership don't do anything about it. Our daughter was physically attacked by a boy in her class and the teacher told her to suck it up. When we spoke to the principal about it, he assured something would be done, and nothing was. There was even a fist fight between a third grade teacher and one of the parents. The school is out of control. Our daughter will be attending a new school this upcoming year.

andrews is the worst school i've attended out of the many schools i've attended in my whole life. their security does nothing, all they do is sit on their bum all day. it amy look nice but it is disgusting once you go inside the pods. they don't clean the bathrooms right either. if you have any kids who have minor problems, DO NOT SEND THEM HERE... the child(ren) will be made fun of every day and nobody will do anything about it. i am happy to say that i am happly promoted from 8th grade. now i goo to hampton high another bad school, BUT I CONSIDER IT HOME COMPARED TO ANDREWS!!!

this school is terrible! my kids have been going to this school for two years and were not treated well at all by kids and staff take very little action to protect my kids at this school I would not recommend this school to any one


Posted March 10, 2014

This is my son's first year at Andrews (kindergarten). We were pleasantly surprised - amazed actually. The school is huge and very intimidating but all the kids I see navigate the maze with confidence. They halls are loud and bustling - there are 1200 kids- but not out of control. Every teacher/parent/staff member seems to help control any out of line kid. I have also volunteered/attended many events at the school. I am constantly amazed at how committed each and every staff member is to keeping the school running. My son loves his class and all the extra resource classes they have each week. I worked with the guidance department, they were helpful. When my son started having some classroom issues, his teacher and I discussed options and came up with a plan to manage them. This is our third school in the area, first public one. At each school there is always some student that caused more trouble, or a teacher that has a wilder class, or some parent that has made me cringe. There are simply more people at this school thus more opportunity for issues. I do wish they had more playground time.

My God Son has attended this school for 3 years now. He is currently in the 2nd grade and we have been nothing but satisfied with his experiences at Andrews. This school year the school is under a new principal who is very welcoming and determined to put the students education first. The Previous principal was good as well, but the school seems to be going in a new direction with a more active PTSA group..they have hosted events for the Middle School students and worked with the Family Engagement Specialist to host Family Learning Nights. If we as parents want to see change we must become a part of the solution and continue supporting our children and their educators. I love this school and hope we continue to see growth and change!


Posted December 19, 2013

I subbed one day at this school and will not be back! The middle school students are housed in what is called pods. These pods have their lockers, bathrooms, and several classrooms in an area smaller than my house! The students are rude and disrespectful. When I asked the students to stand for the pledge of allegiance, many chose not too. When I asked another teacher about this, I was told that they aren't "forced" to. That lack of respect is dishonorable to all the military that have served! Security runs rampant around that school trying to contain bad behavior. If the teachers, staff, and administration do not get a handle on the behavior of these students, I don't see any kind of future for them! If you have a choice as to sending your child to an elementary/middle school in Hampton, choose another one. Andrews is not it!

This is my first experience with Hunter B. Andrews School. After hearing such negative views of the school from previous years, I must say that I am impressed with the new direction of the school. The staff is helpful and friendly and the school's administration is supportive. I am an involved parent and work with the Family Engagement Specialist to volunteer at this school. Thanks for being a great school Hunter B. Andrews.

Wonderful! My son attended a private christian school for kindergarten and first grade, which is a more sanitized environment, so my wife and I were concerned about our son's transition to public school. Upon meeting the principal and his teacher, I quickly realized that he would be in an academically challenging, and safe environment. The staff is engaging and polite, and they exhibit a lot of pride in the school. This is due, largely, to the leadership of the principal. My wife and I are extremely satisfied with our experience Hunter B. Andrews School.

As a parent of two daughters, I am very impressed with this school. They are not only being prepared academically but the same values we teach at home are being taught. There are clubs sponsoring various things but one of our favorite is "Tie Day". The young men dress in ties and the ladies in bows to foster professionalism. Both of my daughters teachers hold them accountable to the highest standards and communicate with our family about ways to continue learning. We have attended many wonderful events at this school as a family including the most recent Superhero Night. We are always impressed by the opportunities families have to connect with the school both in the building and in the community. We receive text messages, phone calls and emails reminding and inviting me to upcoming events. We are so thankful to have a school that tries so very hard to establish the foundation of education we want for our daughters. We look forward to watching our young daughter grow in this environment. Keep up the great work teachers and staff!

My autistic child has been pushed to be mainstreamed since he started at this school. He has been bullied horribly, to the point of being cut with the bent metal end of a pencil, having his lunch thrown away by other students, slammed into walls and was even kicked by one of the teachers aid's. After going to the school the teacher was still kept on staff and left with my child again, after assurances that he wouldn't be. This is only elementary school. When he's went to the teachers about bullying while physical incidents were happening he was told it was "just a game", when it obviously wasn't. There are some great teachers there like others have said, but over all the school seems out of control. Bullying and no discipline, also not following his IEP has been an issue for the past 3 years and getting worse every year. He will not be attending anymore. It would be great to see a school like this institute a technique to deal with all the bullying, such as nurtured heart therapy that has shown great improvements in other inner city schools with similar issues. It seems as if the school is turning a blind eye to the out of control student body.

this school needs improvement with the student and better discpline its not that good with language and still needs improvement i WILL NOT send my child here


Posted April 30, 2013

No school is ever going to be perfect for your little one....unless of course you have a lot of money to pay for private school. I feel that the school is what you make of it and it is very important to have parent involvement these days. Teachers here have always been cooperative and very helpful. I have had very pleasant experiences at this school and my child will be entering the 3rd grade and has been attending for 2 years now.

There are only two reviews for this school and unfortunatly I have to second the review dated 8 March 2012. The students are out of control, total disrespect for the teachers, my son is bullied verbally and physically and I dont think the staff has control of the situation. We chose this school because it supposedly has an engineering track for students showing that aptitude, he was chosen from a lottery to attend. I now believe the "engineering program" is a scam to try to bring up the schools SOL stats. My son will not be returning. That being said I have respect for several of the teachers, to bad they are stuck in a re-make of "To Sir with Love" wit Sidney Poitier.

This is a horrible school, despite its shiny, brand new, state-of-the-art exterior. Students use the N-word and F-word freely and the teachers say there is nothing they can do. My child has been bullied and some teachers act as if I am over reacting. And two of my child's teachers have called her class "a bunch of retards" and one called them "buttholes." Bad behavior is the norm. My advice to any parent considering this school is to RUN, don't walk, as far away from this school as possible.

I have a child in pre k and kindergarten. My son had some behavior issues when he was in pre k. The staff from the asst principal, guidance office, and other school officials worked with him, along with his new teacher, and got him on the right track. This school, in my opinion, offer some great programs and opportunities for my children. They are currently zoned for another school, but because I had such a great experience with this school, my children are attending this school out of zone.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the Virginia Department of Education. Data is not reported when there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a 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. High school students must pass at least six SOL End-of-Course tests to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
