I hated it here. It's like the Gulag, with bells. The uniform is a joke, and there is very little trust towards the students. I was so glad to leave on the last day, two years ago, and I really don't miss it there.

I love Linkhorne Middle School and they make middle school fun there and I will be sad to leave.

Linkhorne has great programs like band, orcestra, chorus, drama, shop, sports and other electives. I am in the band and we have a wonderful, funny band director that helped us to 2nd place in the music in the parks at Busch Gardens!

Student here at Linkhorne, in the Eighth Grade. Personally, if you look around the fact that I hate school overall (problems in the past).. Linkhorne is a great school. Not looking forward to leaving it in two and a half months.

Linkhorne is a very well run school that is has good discipline, and yet treats each student as an individual. The teachers are excellent, and the students are really good kids as well. The school has some diversity, but all the students benefit from it, and there don't seem to be the racial problems like in some places. My son plays football, and the players on the team actually put pressure on him to get straight 'A's.

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.
