Hillsville Elementary is a wonderful school. All the staff are great to the children. Principal Mr. Martin strives to keep the school at its best. He knows each childs name. He also makes sure that the children with learning disabilities are treated with dignity and respect. There is no better school around

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.
