This is a wonderful school. A lot has to do with the principal. He is a caring person and is there for the students. He gives the school and faculty everything. I hope he never leaves. Thank you so much my son loves school because he has a wonderful role model to look up to.

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.
