Living in Richmond City where schools does not offer Pre-K my daughter was behind. In Henrico school system especially Johnson Elementary continuing growth and learning development my daughter is up to par. We still need to focus on some areas but the teaching there is well structured. I love this school very good to go I feel like my daughter is on a first grade level and she reading, doing fractions, coins, and words. Writing sentence reading comprehension.

I think this is a great school! This is my daughter's first year here and I'm very impressed in the staff and how involved they are in their students education. It is a very diverse school and they seem to embrace it by having lots of different functions outside of the school.

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.
