They are wanting to just put a child on mediciation to the point where the child seems to be a zombie. My oldest child was not able to get all the help that he needed to be a good student. He needed more help than what he recieved .

Great school with dedicated teachers and administration! The PTO is very active and is working very hard to increase parent participation.

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.
