So far, so good! We have had good experiences with the teachers and the communication with parents is excellent! The school is nicely maintained and newer than some in LoCO. My only concern is that classroom sizes seem to be fairly large for the younger grades. My daughter had 27 in her 1st grade class at one point! Overall we feel at home with SCES.

If your child is not a perfect student and does not follow the teacher to the letter........RUN!!!!!! This school will let your child fall to the wayside! Only the cream of the crop will thrive here cause they are low maintenance.

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.
