I work at this school and we have made great strides in the S.O.L.,the learning is great, parents in this area do not support their children or their School Staff, or PTA.

This school is failing our children and setting them up for failure, not success. I've had to remove my children from this school because the education they're recieving is terrible inadequate.

Over the years, Fairfield has improved in providing the students with a quailty education. Everyone work very hard to make the school a better environment for learning. The goal appears to be to allow the students to do the best that they can do.

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.
