I'm not a parent @ MMS, but I did attend there, and I also work as a substitute there! It is a wonderful and true middle school! My hope is to work there myself after I graduate this May! Hats off to the best Middle school staff I have ever been involved with!

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.
