My school is fantastic! We have kind, caring teachers. The teachers are really good about informing parents on their child's progress on a daily basis and also make time to help children on an individual basis. Fun and exciting learning tools. My kids really enjoy going to school here! The staff as a whole are wonderful! Great cafeteria as well, with healthy lunches!

What a great place to send you kids! The educators are intensely interested in helping you kids perform at their highest potential. I have had kids in this since the 1st day it opened, and am proud to say they received their education at Flat Rock.

A beautiful school to look at, and an awesome school to send your child to. FRES offers a wonderful administration and caring and productive teachers that the students adore! Addintionally, the PTO is very involved, and plans lots of activities for the teachers and children.

This is a fairly new school in the area and has only been open for going on 2 years. But in that time it has shown that it has many great teachers and staff memebers that really cares about the education of the students and making the school a safe and fun place to be. They really make education come to life and help the kids really understand just what it is all about.

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.
