This elementary school could really use funds. It schools children who do not have much and in order to keep these children on track, I would really like to see help given where needed. I have no children in school but mine were luck to grow up in a better school system. Please help these children by turning their lives around with a good education. Thank you all so much:)

My childs teachers have great for the past three years, and I love how the schools operate. The only thing I didnt like was not being able to pick my child up after 2:05 from the office instead having to wait with the car riders for an extra twenty minutes.

My son went here for Kindergarten and we loved his teacher and the school environment. His teacher was nurturing and he learned a ton! We were always impressed with the school, its staff, principals and the school's integrity as a whole.

When my son went there for the REACH program (Special ed prek) he was treated like an OUTCAST, and that he was just another 'bother'. If you have special needs kiddos I wouldn't send them here. Go down to Roanoke City School Administration and tell them you want a transfer!

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.
