Gladesboro Elementary School is a superb school. The faculty and staff go the extra mile to ensure that individual student receives a quality education! The administration is also superb. Mrs. Reed is an excellent principal! I would recommend Gladesboro Elementary to anyone who is looking for a public elementary school in the Hillsville area of Southwest Virginia!

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.
