Posted September 9, 2008

My son was diagnosed with high-functioning Autism when he was three. He began attending Yellow Branch, in the Special Education Preschool class, in March of 2008 and is now continuing for the 2008-09 school year. His teacher and her assistant are some of the most loving, patient, professional teachers I've worked with - and I taught for 5 years before having children of my own. He was welcomed with open arms, and has made significant improvement. We feel blessed that our son has the opportunity to attend preschool in the area, and to have professionals who will work with him in such a fantastic way. The staff and the school environment are warm and inviting. Thank you, Yellow Branch!

The 2005-2006 school year was the first year of school for my children. They really enjoyed each aspect of school. Also, the reconstruction going on in the school has made a wonderful difference. The new wing, gym, and soon to be new library and renovated cafeteria and front office will only add to the special effect the school has had on our children. The staff and all the teachers have been very helpful, kind and open with our family. We love Yellow Branch Elementary School!

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.
