Posted October 3, 2007

I think this school is a great school, I have 3 sons, 2 graduated from ceasar tarrant and are doing well in middle and high school and my last son just started kindergarden there, he loves it and is doing really well. The school is very clean and the teachers and principal is doing a great job working with the kids and meeting all their goals. The staff is kind and is concerned about the children. I would recommend the school to parents. My children loves it!

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.
