hello I went to this school when I was a kid, and wanted a yearbook pic if its possible..i need it for a gift for my mother she is sick and it would really make her day thank you..my name is tommy Crisman I believe I went there in the 80's..if you could email it to me ty

My daughter has been at Lacey since K (now in 3rd grade) and I'm very pleased with her progress, both socially and academically. The teachers and principal are very caring but maintain discipline. My only complaint would be that so many of the extracurricular activities for Rockingham County are held at the larger schools, which aren't close to those of us on the southern edge of the county. On the other hand, we are very fortunate to have the county Rec. Dept. afterschool program at Lacey--a lifesaver...time to do homework and get some exercise while I finish up work.

This is a great school. The teachers are very caring when it comes to your children. There is alot of parents that help out at school. Always smiling faces there. My son started in Pre-k and he is now in kindergarten and doing well. I recommend this school for anyone's child.

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.
