Posted February 7, 2008

We also moved to the area about 2 years ago and my experience was completely different from the last parent. My two kids have receive a great education, personalize attention, their grades have improve dramatically and they love their teachers and friends. We receive constant communication and feedback from our kids teachers and we are very please with our kids improvements and testing results.

I can agree with this parent. I have first hand account that this does happen where kids get beaten up and teachers are not focused on teaching rather they focus on the troublemakers. This school is low on all levels of testing scores and no parent involvement really shows. The school needs to work a lot on cleaning itself up.

We moved to this area about 2 years ago and during that time, my son has been picked on, threatened, and been made to feel inferior by the other students in his classes. The children are evidently a product of their up-bringing and I must say, the parents are lacking in social skills. My husband and I have decided to move based solely on the fact I do not want my son to attend this school any longer.

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.
