My daughter is going into 2nd grade and she has learned far more than she did In this school than she has in Montessori Acadamy. Most of the teachers showed great Care for their students and Dr. Friedman the principle is very enthusiastic .

There are multiple instances of communication breakdown within the walls of this school. Everything from teacher to teacher, teacher to admin, admin to teacher, admin to parent and teacher to parent. I am WHOLLY dissatisfied with everything about this school, and my child will NOT go there next year!

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.
