I am unsure on why the office staff acts like they are better than you. If not for the parents and the children in the school they would not have a job. I have been in the school a number of times and can say that they have always been short with me. I have talked to the principal concerning my child and he acted like he didnt have time to talk. What are you doing that you cant take 2 minutes to talk with a parent. Must say I DO NOT LIKE THE STAFF.

As the old saying goes, "Don't judge a book by its cover, open it and become part of it." I agree completely that our school is one of the least attractive schools and has many physical issues, but when you open the door and enter into a classroom you will forget about the physical limitations. Learning is taking place and student needs are being met, regardless of what the No Child Left Behind benchmarks indicate, which are not the same as the state of VA benchmarks. MIS meets the state benchmarks. Afterall, its unrealistic to believe that 100% is achievable from all people in all areas of learning; especially our special needs children who might be mentally and/or physically impaired to the degree that the primary focus is not passing a test, but teaching life skills. Please be a part of our school community. We want and need you!

The building has been marked as unsafe for a school or even office building for several years now. In addition, the school continually fails to meet academic standards and does not prepare students for middle school curriculum. Minimal attention given to needs of accelerated children. Would score under a one star if available.

The school administration is very unprofessional. There are no consequences for unexceptable behavior. The good students are suffering due to the lack of discipline and organization. The focus is about SOL's and not in helping your child to grow academically.

I am concerned about the condition of the building and the health risks to my child.

School building is in horrible condition. The school principal is also horrible. Something needs to happen here!

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.
