This school is closed and empty due to budget cuts. This WAS a great school! We will miss it.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted June 4, 2006

I have substituted at Falling Springs Elementry School several times and enjoy it very much. The teachers are so involved with the children and they do a wonderful extracurricular program which allows the child time for bible study if they choose to get involved. The children are disciplined very well. I also would like to add that the teachers and staff make everyone substitues and parents fell welcome to their school. I have decided that when I have children if I still live in the area I will want my children to attend Falling Springs Elementry.

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.
