The administration and most of the teachers at this school are very supportive. A very nice experience for me and my parents.


Posted July 19, 2013

Just really terrible experience for me. The worst three years of my life. The instruction on some of the hardest subjects such as spanish and math are just awful. I was in the IB programme and the foreign language department is in disaray and when i got to high school iwas smacke with a D+ in spanish three my freshman year which ruined my GPA. If i was a parent i would not let my kid go to this school. Yes its very diverse but the neighberhood surrounding it is not very affluent with disintrested parents. Which breeds lower test scores from under achieving students..........god awful.

The school is okay they teach to the Test (SOL) after they are done with the SOL test its just movie time in most classes. If your teacher thinks your kid need to re-take the class next year he or she will only get a D or F no matter what he does.

Very vigorous cirriculum. Awesome teachers - totally on point. Creative and intelligent students with a lot of drive. Very diverse population (I am very happy to send my children to this type of school - they learn to just accept everyone for who they are, and not what they look like or sound like - you gotta love that). Once through this school - the kids are truely ready to tackle whatever comes in high school.

They do not provide a good framework for or have an adequate understanding of special needs children. Their policies and support for special education are straight out of the 50's. The 1850's.

Teachers and staff members fo Stonewall Middle School work very close with you to assure your child is getting the best education. They are always very informative of what is going on with your child and the school. I highly recommend Stonewall Middle School for your child.

this was my kid's first school in VA and I can say that this school deserves a better rating. School staff is very friendly and they take care very well of the kids. learning was fun here as my kid states. Unfortunately we have to move to another school because of relocation.

I am a student of sms. I am new here but at my first few weeks here, i feel so great! The teachers, staffs, employees and students! They welcomed me as if i am Old here. THey are so cool and good. I thought at first there are so many gangs here in this school but now it is just a thought! They are so nice! The 8th grade teachers welcome me so good! At first i am a little bit scared (like all students feel when it is the first day of school) but it turned out great!

i am a student who goes to sms and i have to say that my school is awesome. We might have a reputation at our school for being a 'ghetto' school full of gang members etc. but we do have a lot of students in our school who go way against that. The math courses that are avaliable are awesome i am an 8th grader and i am allowed to take geometry. which is the highest math possible for my age. The music department i have to admit is shakey which is sad because i am a music fan but it is getting better with each year. We dont have great sports teams but they are fun and totally worth the time. So hope your check out SMS!

The math and science teachers are true leaders and genuniely care about students excelling. I give applause to their mentoring. My child has grown immensely under their tutilege and we saw her SOL test scores rocket. The IB/Signet program also has a skilled dept head, who does well at guiding exceptional students. The music dept is growing and full of promise by virtue of the wonderful teachers making great strides and inspiring the students. On the down side is their sports programs and extracurriclar activities which stlll have a long way to go. Activities like soccer and cheerleading are suffering terribly under a definate lack of direction and leadership. Plus, there is very little focus on actual art and creative expression. Sadly this influence and inspiration is missing, which as a parent of a gifted art student, is very disappointing.

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.
