My child is taking geometry in the 8th grade which is wonderful, when she starts high school she will already have 3 credits. The principal leadership is lacking but the majority of the teachers are wonderful. The small school allows students to get more attention.

We continue to deliver a high quality education even though we are underfunded locally and now underfunded by the state.

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.
