I love Hurt school. I really like Mrs. Murphy and most all of the teachers. My son did very well there and my daughter is doing well also. I see a close bond with the teachers. You can just tell that the teachers work very hard and really care about the students. We are so lucky to have them!

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.
