This school continues to serve the students, parents and community well. My daughter is in kindergarten reading and spelling short words. My son is in second grade continuing to learn more language and mathematical skills. What I like best about the school is its reading initiative. The school enforces daily reading skills by having a minimal of fifteen minutes per day for reading. I have successfully implemented that same rule at home which means that each day I know that my kids are reading at least thirty minutes a day. Keep up the good work Southampton!

I am a very happy parent of an Honor Roll student, for all four marking terms. The teacher are wonderful the principal is great and is always involved, I have moved out of the area now and I still make a way to get my future 2nd grade student to this wonderful school. She has been there since K and If I have my way she will stay until that Grad day!

Southampton is a Great School! The teachers are caring, student-centered, and talented, the principal is extremely positive and supports her teachers with enthusiasm, the facility is very good, and the programs are extensive (including band and a string program). My only wish was that parents were more involved in the PTA. Could we have meetings on other nights than Tuesday, perhaps? White families need not fear that their children are few in number, the school is very inclusive and continues to bring in more diversity. Happy Parent of a Pre-K Southampton student.

This school is very good. The teachers care about the students. The teachers help the children to be the best they can be in the school with the way they help children understand the right behavior in school and correct them if they are wrong. They let the children know the proper behavior in school. They have SCA leader club which voices the childrens interest to improve the school for the better. I rate this school a 5.

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.
