Posted August 1, 2012

My daughter started attending this school in K and will be beginning the 5th grade 2012 - 2013... I am well pleased with Tim Prater and Sue Cook the principal and assistant principal.... And I would highly recommend this school.... The cafeteria food needs to be more kid friendly though, other than that no complaints yet..... I must say before I sign off that when my daughter was struggling in math that the asst. principal personally got out of her comfortable chair and made a point to give my daughter one on one extra help, this is not something that happens anywhere else and I feel like my child was NOT left behind, because of Sue Cook's geniune concern and compassion for my child.

Our school and leadership is the best in the county and maybe the state of Va. All the children are treated with respect and are cared for in every way. Keep up the great work.

Our school has updated technology and innovative, as well as creative teachers who are continuously striving each and every day to put smiles on students who would otherwise face hardships from some everyday struggles from some rather tough home lives. We have school spirit and team leadership among the workplace, and an admistration leader who not only is there for his teachers, but know what is best for the students, and will put them first! Our t-shirts read HEMS, whiich mean Higher Expectations Motivate Students! The higher our exectations the more students willbe motivated!

I really think our principal is great. He has done a terrific job of making our school into a fun and safe place for the children and now that it is painted, it looks like a school instead of a yellow-walled prison. Those Justice girls did a great job...

The reason that the parents are barely allowed in the building is probably because it's gotten to the point that parents in Hurley insist upon walking they're children to class until they're a senior in high school. It had gotten to a point that parents seemed to want to just hang out down there in the lobby as if it were a place to gather and socialize. I think both the principal and the assistant principal are wonderful at what they do. At least you know your children are safe when they go to school there.

I have a child in this school and it has gotten so stupid how it is ran, it's more like boot camp! Parents never know what's going on anymore. We are barely allowed in the building. To be honest this is the worst year at Hurley I have ever seen, I went to this school when it opened and I have never seen it as stupid as it is now. I hope this is the 1st and last year that our new principal and assistant principal has.

The teachers here are great they treat your children as if they were their own. It is a small community here but a safe one for children.

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.
