The majority of the teachers care and work very hard to teach your children. For a small community, this school has some excellent programs if your child is willing to work a little bit.

This school is awful! My child came to this school this year from another public school and I can't believe the difference. The school should be able to work with all the children not just the class average. I am currently researching private school because narrows is pathetic!

I am unhappy with this school. Getting special education help for children that qualify is very hard. The children are labeled by their teachers and that label will follow them. A child labeled as a problem will be treated as a problem based on a previous teachers opinion without ever getting a chance with the new one.

I feel that the children are driven to compete against other schools at all times,even in their sleep. Sports are great, but only if you excel and are born a native to the county. There is no recess, even though an excuse is given that the kids have unstructured time-when they still can't talk or make a noise. I have been extremely unhappy with the discipline, and I've worked with kids of all ages for many years. This school is EXTREME in all they do. There is no before school program, so if you work there will be issues for daycare because there is none here. There is one for after school, but it is a homework session, but doesn't accommodate most.

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.
