My son has been going to Redd Elementary 4 years. The school is excellent for a public school.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 9, 2009

Upon enrolling my daughter into school, I really didn't feel too welcomed by the staff in the office. I admit that the registration didn't take too long, but I was standing there for periods of time waiting for assistance, while several women just stood there doing nothing. Also, in my opinion, I felt that their attitudes could use some evaluation and readjusting. Besides these are the people we are entrusting with our children. Often the success of the school, starts in the office.

They are really sweet with the kids when they are far beyond excellent.

This is my child's first year at this school and I feel the school is wonderful. The teachers are great, and there are many programs were parents can attend and participate in activities with their children. The teaches seem very concerned and focused on the children, and them learning all that they can. I have another child and I will be more than happy to send her to this school too.

I think this is a great school with great teachers. But I also think they need to find a better way to get parents involved. Maybe update and put more info. on their web page. They could also offer more extracurricular activities. All in all the teachers are wonderful.

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.
