My son went here and my daughter currently goes there. I absolutely loved her K and 1st grade teacher and hope that I am just as pleased with her 2nd grade teacher.

I am excited about the update to the building, which was my only complaint about this school. The teachers are wonderful; we have really been blessed by the quality of teaching in my son's classrooms. He has also enjoyed the gifted program.

I really do enjoy this school. My daughter gets a quality education and is challenge daily to strive for more. The principle is tough, but she runs a really good school, considering when she took it over a couple of years ago it was a mess. Now the scores are in the 90's and they have excellent teachers. Some of the older post do not speak to how much this school has changed compaired to four years ago, but I am here to reassure that it is an excellent school on of the best in Portsmouth and I am proud my daughter attends.

I must admit I was a little leary about sending my three kids to Churchland Primary & Intermediate school. My kids had just left a DOD school overseas and I wasn't sure they were going to get what they need at Churchland. I am consistently updated on my kids' progress in school and if there is a problem I feel more than comfortable to speak to thier teachers. Mrs. Freeman, the principal, is professional and dedicated. I don't believe all the parents are as involved as they can be in thier children education; but the teachers are doing up thier part.

This is my son's second year at Churchland Primary and I must say I'm not impressed with the administration or staff. His teachers last year were average as well as his teachers this year. Overall the school is Ok at best.

Overall CPI has been a great school.The administrators, faculty & staff are very committed toward the students. My children have received numerous awards and have benefited from extra curricular activities such as: Computer Challenges, Spelling Bees, Accelerated Reading, Social/Motivational Programs and Math Contest. I feel if more parents would become more involved in their children's academics and began more parenting skills at home the administrators and teachers could spend more time on instruction versus discipline issues. CPI still needs support from the local school division to retain and recruit competent teachers. The bottom line if parents are active, constructively involved and positive about their child's future CPI will continue to excel!

Kindergarten was AWESOME. Teachers were very helpful and loving. First grade was a nightmare! Principal kept saying she would talk to the teacher about issues we had, but never did. I am so glad to be out of that school and into a much better situation. There was nothing but negative feedback. Children need positive feedback as much if not more. Teachers were not cheerful or happy to be there. I was very displeased overall. Education was another issue. He is very far behind in his new school, but he was in CIP's gifted program! Parents were not encouraged to be involved either.

I was an overactive parent at this school for five years. As my child progressed from grade to grade, so did my concerns. Concerns that are too extensive to share in this rating. Being an active parent gave me a heads up over most other parents. As a result, I was able to see for myself the actual quality of the school and its administrator. The primary focus of learning is on the SOL. If you want your child to be well-rehearsed for the SOL, subjected to stressed out and oftentimes incompetent teachers and substitutes, total chaos in the classroom and beyond, and undisciplined peers, this is the school for you. I removed my children from this school in 2005. There are a handful of dedicated parents who try to make a difference. Unfortunately, they are up against a system that is more concerned about numbers than the actual students.

The quality of academic programs is average at best. School is more interested in catering to NCLB students and meeting state SOLs. There are very few extracurricular activities available. Parent involvement is good, but the schools got funding issues.

C.P.I.S. is a great school. The faculty & staff under the guidance of a great principal really set the environment for a great learning experience. The school acts as a family & the children feel safe. Having 2 children attend this school has been an excellent experience for my family & the principal is keen on 'Education First; Playtime, Fads & clics, Selfish additudes & biosness not entertained.

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.
