Nickelsville Elementary is a very great school. The teachers there are very outstanding. They really care for the students there. They are very supportive to the parents also on any questions that the parents may have. My children have been going there for 5 years and there is no other school I would send them to.

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.
