Great students, great teachers, the best ever!!!!!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted March 21, 2005

As a 6 grade student at Belle Heth I think that Belle Heth is a very good school. the teachers are very helpful. they help with homework and class work. But while at Belle Heth I have leared things I never dreamed I would learn at a pubic school. While at Belle Heth I have learened how use a compurter more than I already knew how. I have learned to play an instrument and read music in band while at Belle Heth. To be successful at Belle Heth you have to work hard and have fun while being rectful. And I would reccomend Belle Heth to any one in the grade level 4-6 to go and to have fun doing so.

Outstanding, a description of Radford City Public Schools as a whole. Belle Heth, in particular, has a very inviting atmosphere where students can prosper. Parents and students are called by name and treated with utmost respect. All staff are courteous and talented. I would highly recommend this school to anyone. I would also encourage others to reside in the City of Radford and enjoy the wonderful quality of life and the top notch school system.

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.
