We had a wonderful experience at Langley Elementary this year. The teachers and administration are excellent, there's a very involved PTA, and a great deal of effort is made to showcase the talents of the students through music programs as well as art displays.

My daughter attends Langley as a Kindergartener this year and she absolutely loves it. The staff is wonderful and caring and the principal is an outstanding leader. The parental involvement is very strong. Most school events are well attended, even those during the middle of the week. I know that when my child is in school she is mentally stimulated, well taken care of, safe and happy. What more can a parent ask for?!

I give Langley a strong reveiw because not only does the school provide the children with a a happy learning environment, but the people who work there, including the teachers, nurses, secrataries, etc., all seem genuinely interested in the children as individuals! There has been a new principal assigned this year and I hope this environment will continue to grow. The school is also in a great location and has a well developed PTA.

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.
