—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 1, 2009

I attended school here K-12 and looking back the small class sizes were wonderful and benefitial to my college success. My son now attends this school and, thus far, I am incredibly pleased with teacher's attentiveness and helpfulness. He is very happy there.

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.
