Education wise the school seems all right thus far. The major problem is that the communication between parents and the school is non-existent. They solely rely on you googling them to get answers to any questions you might have. Or following them on facebook to get any information regarding the school. No school calendar was issued, no papers from the school telling you of upcoming activities, registration, even open house.

Well it was an ok school but bullying has been an issue I won't send any of my other kids to this school but the teachers are amazing but it's just the principal and guidance office that's.not amazing.

I go to this school, I am in seventh grade at ALMS. As you can see, we did by far better than the other schools. Great students and staff. I would like to thank Mr. Gallion for keeping us in line and working hard to prepare us for eighth grade, and our whole lives. Great job, ALMS. I love you.

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.
