Posted July 6, 2010

I am updating a review I gave last year. My son has finished 2nd grade this year at Snow Creek and had a GREAT teacher this year. He grew and learned so much during the year. Class sizes are small, the principal is outstanding and involved with all the kids. We send our son here even though we don't live in district, so we drive him back & forth to school each day - that is how much we love Snow Creek.

Snow Creek elementary is a good building block for your childs education. Caring teachers and staff help to mentor our children and get the education they need before entering middle school and high school.

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.
