This school is absolutely amazing! My two kids have gone there and they flourished under the care and attention of the wonderful panel of teachers thad work here. My son has an IEP and he was dealt with, both, promtly and with such attention to detail that, sometimes the school could tell there was a problem even before i could. The headmistress is fantastic. She deals with all kinds of issues with a firm but understanding attitude. It is truly a jewel of a school

This school was amazing. I loved how many chances there are to work one on one with teachers. My little sister goes to Clearbrook now and she loves it as well. Ms. Pendleton is great, as are all of the teachers. They are all very loving and kind and want the best for children.

Karen Pendleton as the principle is wonderful. She knew my son's name from the first week. Great support system. Great afterschool program on site as well.

Clearbrook elementary is a small school with class sizes at about 17. The children receive a very good education. However, there have been some recent problems that the principle does not seem to be able to deal with.

Clearbrook has a small and nurturing environment with a 'family feel.' Teachers utilize traditional and progressive educational techniques to ensure that every child learns and feels successful. Extra support services, in addition to small classes help to provide great teacher-student ratios.

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.
