I am extremely disappointed with this school. I whole heartedly believe this school is failing my daughter. This school is 99% Hispanic. They concentrate too much on teaching the parents English. Having programs to help them have free internet, free computers, free Wi-Fi. My child came home one day and told me that they didn't have any money on their lunch card, (the majority is home made lunch) and they had only given 2 items. My child started crying, "I was so hungry mommy!" I was outraged!!! The majority of this school is on the free/reduced lunch program. And they only gave my child 2 items. Seriously!! My friends who have children in the Northern Virginia school system post about their child in there school plays, school dances, school projects. My child in the (3) years they've gone here, have done nothing like that. Because there focus are on the wrong things. I feel my child is getting left behind.

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.
