Was displeased with the experience as a whole. Had two kids go from Kindergarten to 5th grade here and through that period had several encounters with issues as far as Teachers disrespecting their students and the principal always siding with the teachers and not concerned with parents discontentment. Their teachers are not educated on first aid and there was an instance where children were exposed to heat exhaustion and the facility showed no concern. Several teachers are known to constantly shout at their students and though several parents showed concern with that environment no changes ever occurred same Teachers have been there the entire 5 years.

This is my daughter's first year at Brock Road Elementary. She attended anther Spotsylvania school for Kindergarten last year. That school was AMAZING. I am less than impressed with Brock Road. There is zero communication. We don't know who the Principal is. Every single function at my daughter's other school the Principal would get up and talk during an assembly. Brock Road we are lucky enough to have a school function let alone see the Principal. At the other school the Principal knew all the kids by name. She even knew my younger children's names. One School One Book last year they had a big function to introduce it. At Brock Road the book was sent home and that was it. My daughter said they don't even discuss it during class. I had to go pick up my daughter from school the other day and they didn't even ask for my I.D. Talk about scary. I was hoping since we were moving in the same school district the schools would be the same...or at least similar. They are not in anyway. I wish we could drive her to her other school. We are looking into different schools now. Such a shame.

My son has attended Brock Road for three years. I could not have asked for better teachers for my child. I have volunteered each year in the classroom and have loved what I see. Should we ever relocate, the next school will have high standards to live up to.

We have so many devoted, caring, patient, hard-working teachers. The supporting staff is always cheerful, helpful and devoted. I consider our son very lucky to be a part of Brock Road Elementary.

Our daughter has been at Brock Road for four years so far. We had considered moving this past year but the one thing that stopped us from moving was finding a school is Brock Roads District. We have always found the entire staff very caring and understanding and a joy to work with not only for our daughter but for us as well. We've been blessed with the teachers we have dealt with in being veryopen to communication with us as well.

I love this school. When I was looking for schools for my children, I was really concerened, but the teachers and staff at this school are terrific. I volunteer any chance I get and the teachers let you know what is going on through out the entire school year. The staff knows pretty much every child by name, and if not they know their faces and the classroom they should be in. I could not be happier that my children attend here. I was at other schools checking them out and by far BRES won. They take pride in getting fundraisers to help with the school budget, but it is not manditory. I think it is great and it really gets the kids envolved as well.

I was a homeschooling parent before moving to Spotsylvania County. I was torn about my decision to enroll my child in school but after seeing her in school and how well she did I couldn't be happier with my decision. The office staff is very helpful and I love, love, love the teachers that my child is involved with. Plenty of opportunities to volunteer and get involved without the pressure or guilt to feel that you *have* to do it. Great job BRES!

This is a great school. The teachers truly have the childs interest first. My son excelled every year that he attended BRES. He was reading before the end of kindergarten and by the end of fifth grade he was reading on a high school level. There are lots of opportunities to volunteer. The office staff are very helpful. I am so glad that my son had the opportunity to attend this school. I would not have sent him anywhere else.

This school is the closest thing to private school you can find in public education. The school itself is beautiful and the teachers could not be better. My daughters were reading by the end of kindergarten. It is orderly and maintains high expectations. My daughters are happy and love school. If you look at the school's scores, what more can be said?

I just read the negative review of this school and I could not disagree more! This school is the best thing to ever happen to me and my family! If anyone thinks differently, I challange them to get more involved with their kids and this school because as I see it, its wonderful!

Brock Rd Elementary school is the worst school in Spotsylvania County. I have my child currently attending. Her self esteem has lowered, and grades have dropped. Teachers do not take the time to involve themselves with a childs education, they just push them through to the next grade level. This school prides itself on the money they make from fundraisers and school activities. I myself was a student of the Spotsylvania county school system, and it was not this bad then, I seriously recommend that no one enrolls their child here. You would be better off enrolling in another school within the county and paying the fee to do so.

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.
