The teachers at Mountain View Elementary are very good and so is all the staff. Mountain View Elementary is a small school so all the students receive individual help when it is needed


Posted June 9, 2009

I love this school. My step-daughter just finished first grade at this school. Her teacher, Mrs. Harris, was the best we have have ever dealt with. She kept us informed and went out of her way to keep her up to speed with the work. We are very happy with this school. I hope that the rest of her teachers are as good. I'm sad that she is retiring.

This is a very supportive school. From the moment you call or walk into the school you feel the love they have for children! Academically, I feel that students are being taught the material they need for the SOL in creative ways. I am very pleased with Mt. View and have been for the past 3 years.

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.
