My grandchildren just recently moved to your district and began attending school at your Elementary School in December or January. They love it. They have all done really well moving in the middle of the school year as they had to. Riley is a fifth grader and has been very pleased and was on the Honor Roll, Regan is in the third grade and liked one subject making the Honor Roll, and Noah is in kindergarten and will be moving to first grade. It was a little more difficult for him having to move in the middle of the school year being so young, but he has done very well, and I am very pleased and so thrilled that they are happy in their school. Thanks to all who made them feel welcome.

The new principal at this school is an inspirational leader who stresses academic excellence and character development. The teachers aren't just putting their time in; they are constantly developing creative new teaching strategies and winning grants and awards as evidence of their achievement. Students at all levels can find challenge and enrichment here, and most are very involved in their community. Great school!

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.
