I think Ellis Elementary is a culturally diversed school with a curriculum that caters to creative thinking and a sense of awareness of the world. The PTO organizes family oriented events throughout the year, which is a great opportunity to congregate with our child's friend's parents. During these gatherings we are able to exchange ideas on how to enhance the learning of our children. The school facility is well kept with a nutritional meal plan. I'm also pleased with the security they have arranged to protect our children.

This is my son's second year at Ellis. Overall I'm very pleased with the school. It's a beautiful school, unfortunately in the 3rd year it's been open, they are outgrowing it. They just added all-day kindergarten so it took up more room in that area. The teachers my son has had have had great communication via email and phone and the county has a behavior code that all students must adhere to. Any infractions or unsafe behavior is monitored and reported to the parents. This includes pre-bully behavior which has proven to be helpful in identifying those children who 'don't play well with others'. Overall I'm satisfied and look forward to many more years!

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.
