Worst school my children have ever attended. They have a BIG bullying problem and it seems teacher nor the staff cares enough to make a change.my children have been bullied for the past 3 years and till this day the school hasn't done anything to change that. 5 other parents( that I know of) and i have the same problem and still no change on there "bark" system. Over all this school is the WORST

Great principal and many great teachers. The problem with this school is that there is very little parent involvement. There are only a handful of parents that stay involved and they need more parents to be involved.


Posted February 6, 2009

This is a wonderful school. The administration and staff are extremely dedicated to all their students. I am proud to say my child goes to school there! The staff here is more connected to all the children than any other school I've ever seen. Keep up the good work! We can't wait for the new school to open!

I think that Yorkshire elementary has a great staff and especially a great principal. They are working hard on getting programs in there school. I would like to see more parent involvement. I am a very involved parent. That is what makes your kids school successful.

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.
