My daughter did so well at Aberdeen, that when we got transferred to Mississippi, they wanted to jump her a few grades because of how smart she was.

Aberdeen has given my family the best school experience. My child has special needs and all of her needs were met and her teachers went out of their way to give her a wonderful experience! Her teacher, as well as the administration, was new to the building and they have really turned things around, Aberdeen is a wonderful school! I wish my I had another child to send through Aberdeen!!!

I love Aberdeen Elementary School!! This school has great administrators, teachers, and staff!! They are dedicated, hardworking, and caring. Every staff member in the building is invested in helping each student reach his or her highest academic and social potential. Aberdeen strives to provide students with a safe, positive, nurturing, supportive, and diverse learning environment. It's a GREAT place to learn!!

Aberdeen is a haven for underachievers and troublemakers. More time is spent correcting negative behaviors then rewarding the good. It seems that it has become a dumping ground for the more troublesome students that either can't go anywhere else or got the boot from their last school. Ghetto would be a great way to describe it. The teachers can only do so much, but with the parent involvement being nil, it makes it difficult for them to teach the ones who actually care about school. If you can help it, take your child else where.

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.
