Sandusky Middle School is the best school my son has ever done in. he has had straight A's since we moved here from Florida. Not to mention the Excellent band program wich has won so many awards, the teacher, Mr.Meredith hangs them on the walls, and there is so many he has to put the leftovers in his office. They have won 3 NAI championships, and come Superior in ever Lynchburg Classic, 67 times ! They are nationally recognised and they are proven the best band in Lynchburg, some of the players won 1st chair in the All District Band.

I think Sandusky is a very good school. I know since my son transfered there his attitude has changed. I like it because the principle gets involved with whats going on. That's a plus..

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.
