My child has attended Westover Hills for over 3 years now. The quality of education is top notch and school climate is wonderful. Ms. Pitts and Dr. Hines are truly excellent administrators. Teacher feedback has been timely and all concerns have been adressed promplty at the classroom level. I highly recommend this school!

When visiting this I was very disappointed that the teachers ( whom I spoke with )did not speak correcty, but used slang. They also seemed unorganized.

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.
