GHETTO! From the moment you walk into the front office. There are a few staff members that are good at what they do, but for the most part, this school is terrible ! Any parent that believes this school is anything more than that has low expectations for their children. RUN PARENTS...RUN!

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.
