I love this school. Mrs. Wright is awesome and so is the other staff. My children attended Meherrin and my kids have had nothing but an awesome experience here. If every school could have a Mrs. Wright, what a wonderful school system we would have. We moved recently and miss the warm, compassionate feeling that we had there.

Meherrin Elementary works well do to the principal. She is great with the kids and how she runs her school. The school has many activites for the children. Many classes such as computer lab, art,music,p.e..Like anywhere nothing is perfect and there is always room for improvement,however our school continues to strive to do what is best for our children and that gets my vote.

Well my daughter will be entering Kindergarden this fall and I am very excited!! I visited the school during the week and was really impressed w/ the structure and the friendliness from the staff, teachers and other parents. I went to Boykins Elem (back in the day) so its also exciting to see the teachers that taught me teach my daughter. We are moving in from Richmond City and I feel much safer with having my precious daughter at a county school such as Meherrin. I cant wait until school starts for her in Sept.

My son is in the 2nd grade. He loves his teacher and enjoys the things that they do. I am a single mother who is very interested in his performance at school and at home. He has learned a lot from school and thanks to his 1st grade teacher for teaching him phonices. That has helped him so much. When I was coming up we were not taught as he has been. They are learning so much more early then I can remember we did at that age. GOOD JOB MEHERRIN.

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.
