Amelon Elementary school is one of the best schools in this area. My daughter is going to this school for the last three years. We spent nearly three months to find a house to buy in this school zone and finally succeeded in finding one. The teachers and staff are very friendly and understanding.

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.
