Love this school and the teachers! I am an alumni and pretty soon my daughter will be too! She loves her teachers and classmates. Rich Acres has a very warm and inviting atmosphere. And they're always looking for ways to get parents involved. I wouldn't want my daughter any where else! Plus, Rich Acres recieved national recognition for their performance on the 2011 SOL tests! We are all so proud! Go Bucaneers!! :)

Both of my children go to this school. Rich Acres has a wonderful preschool program where the children get to go on all kinds of field trips. My son is currently in the preschool program and my daughter was in it last year. They absolutely loved it! The teachers at this school really care about our children and would recommend it to anyone who has a grade-school child.

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.
