Awful school!!! My 2 kids were sent here as a result of rezoning from j.l Francis and I am so disappointed, they don't allow parent participation in class or field trips, the teachers that I've experienced (grade 4) are rude with no real desire to be teachers, the principal seems more interested in appearances than running the school, bugs in the cafeteria, it is so bad we are actually in the process of trying to move from a house we love to get away from this awful ghetto mess of a school

Our family just moved here from another state and I am very disappointed with this school. There was a police presence on the first day of school to maintain order (not a good first impression). If your child has special needs DO NOT even attempt to send your child here. This school is very discriminatory and insensitive. They will give your child the boot and send he or she to an "alternative" school but of course under the guise of the transfer being "in the best interest of the child" instead of making accomodations for your child.

I am the Secretary of the PTA this year. My son just started Kindergarten at Reid and I have been disappointed in the level of parent involvement.

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.
