This school is top knotch! The GreatSchools rating truly does not do it justice! The staff is caring, the school has a real community school, and my 4 children attended there for 2 1/2 years until we relocated out of state. I would move back to this area just to send my children back here in a heartbeat!

We love this school! The staff and faculty are great. The teacher student ratio is one of the best in the area. The test scores are some of the highest in the area. I couldn't have picked a better school for my daughter.

I am a grandparent and my wife and I are are extreamly pleased with the level of educational that our grandchildren are experiencing at Sandusky Elementary. Our oldest is presently in the sixth grade and has tested out at the 13.1 grade level in a recent reading exam. The twins are in the first grade and are keeping daily journals, which I audit on our quartly visits from NJ. The oldest daughter is teaching the twins how to sign. Not only do they sign, but they speak in spanish between each other. The twins started to read before they went to Sandusky and their education has spiraled upward since the have been there. I have spoken to Mrs Wickham on several occassions and have always found her to be very professional and receptive. Sandusky Academic Programs get a 'Bavo Zulu' in my book.

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.
