I am very uncomfortable with the school. My daughter has been in the school for only 3 weeks, and the staff is not very friendly. They act as if they are running a prison. I've walked my child in to school everyday in the morning and everyday the children have to sit in line with there class in the gym area, but it's confusing for my 5 year old child to find her class when the line for her class is in a different spot everyday. I walk her in to help her find her spot because if not I am afraid the staff will yell at her because she can't find her class. I asked her teacher after the first week there if my child was adjusting well and she responded to me saying if I had question go to the office, she's my child's teacher, not the office!!!

I think that Mcintosh is a great school. The teachers are kind they have lots of parents that volunteer. My daughter started there last year and she loves her teachers. On the other hand we have had problems with students. I do think that the teachers could help more in that area or the parents.

I do not like this school. We have been there to visit the students are not even allowed to talk in the lunchroom. The teachers do not seem to have any time with the teachers. In my opinion and the other parents I have spoken with the teachers just complain to the parents instead of even making an attempt to speak with the student when they feel something is an issue.

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.
