South Anna is a wonderful school. The teachers and administrators genuinely care about the children. There are lots of opportunities for parents to be involved as well. The PTA is second to none. They are so well organized and provide funding for lots of different activities for the children as well as extra supplies for the classrooms and teachers. The music, art and PE programs are very well done. There are so many extra activities that my children could participate in, but we just can't do them all! The academic programs meet the individual needs of the students no matter what level they are. The school is a very compassionate one as well. They are always thinking of ways to help those who are less fortunate. My children love South Anna!

SAES is the best school I could ask for! They want the parents to be involved. They ask for help in the classroom. We actually opted to send our son to SAES instead of the school zone we live in because of its reputation. I am so glad that we did! The 45+ miles I drive everyday is well worth it!

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.
