I went to register my child and the secretary, Mrs. Krebs was not very friendly at all. She came off as very rude. She did not speak to my child and was not very welcoming. Even a teacher we passed coming in and enough common decency to speak to my child and tried to engage in a small conversation. However, the principal was very nice and friendly. One would thing the first encounter meeting someone new would be pleasurable and inviting, with Mrs Krebs was not.

There was changes this year at this school that I am not excited about , I miss our other principal who seemed to be much more caring and there have been no activities. I am very disappointed this year in the Moringside team and sure hope to see Mrs Plypton back in the office !!!

My son goes to Morningside and I don't think you would ever find another school that has a principal and teachers as committed to the students. I have nothing except great things to say about this school and all of its staff. Lovace Bowman

I am very happy with my sons progress at this school. He was transferred to this school after a move. Since being at this school it is no longer a fight to get him to go to school every morning and his grades have improved and the learning is remembered. Unlike the last school he was at. Over all I am very pleased with Morningside school...I think it is one (if not the best) school in the area!

I believe the staff @ Morningside Elementary works very hard to provide the students with the best atmosphere for their educational learning experience. As a parent, I feel it is important for a student to have a good atmosphere to work in free of worries of safety, security, etc. My child has attended Morningside for 4 years. He loves and is proud of his teachers, principal and 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.
