Posted June 12, 2009

I was very concerned about sending my child to Addison. 6th grade teacher Ms. Grantham is great and very knowledgeable in her subjects and the kids love her class. The Principal (Mr. Johnson) is a very hands on type of guy. All concerns i had last year prior to school he addressed and continued to assist throughout the year. They have alot of activities for the kids to keep them busy in and outside of school hours. The Outdoor Adventure Club is the best!!!

To tell the truth Addison is a wonderful school all of the extra curricular activities are up to par and the teachers are full qualified to teach their subject. The econmy is in trouble right now and Addison is having problems with teachers I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a higher education.

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.
