I am a parent of a child in Kindergarden and a 2nd grader. I have not been happy with this school since my second grader began kindergarden. My youngest was excited about school when the school year began and as the year went on he became less and less excited about school. He is telling me that it is boring and he does not want to go. If your child does not fit inside the box, you will have alot of problems. My second grader is having some trouble with math and his teacher just made up every excuse on why she could not give him the extra help he needed. Everything from I have 25 students to 'well we only have a certain amount of time to spend on each subject then we have to move on to get everything in for the SOL's' Do not take you kids here.

I am very happy my child is attending Glen Lea Elementary. She has come home with some type of activity to join since school started. I am pleased to know she has an interest in everything offered. She loves her teachers and thinks they are wonderful. So I feel comfortable knowing she too is comfortable at Glen Lea Elementary!

My three children have gone to Glen Lea for the last two years. I think its a great school. I've seen how the principal interact with the kids, she does a fine job running the school. The teachers are great. My children are in grades K/3/&4. They are honor roll students and enjoy going to Glen Lea.

Glen Lea has helped my daughter be very successful ever since she's been there. The staff are friendly and the principal is always on her job. I love that 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.
