I have been attending lancaster all of my school years and i am not pleased with the way that it has changed...this school has very unsanitary lunch menus and very clumsy walls that are bound to fall at one point or another. again the lunch is disgusting...all of the buses are too long of rides and i am just not pleased with the way that everything has changed..it makes me very upset!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course tests to assess students in reading, writing, math, science and history/social science subjects at the end of each course, regardless of the student's grade level. The SOL End-of-Course tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. High school students must pass at least six SOL End-of-Course tests to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
