As a parent of children who have been to other schools, I can say Speedwell Elementary truly raises the bar to which other schools can only dream of reaching. If only other Principals could have half of Mr. Rouse's leadership skills and passion for each student's achievement. Best school in the County.

Mr. Rouse is a wonderful addition to Speedwell School. The level of 1:1 of teacher to student is great. The teachers really care.

this is a great school to send your child, I went as a child and all four of my children went and now my grandchild will go in a couple of years, the staff is terrific and the small scale of students to teachers make learning so much easier.

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.
