We love Bass Hoover! Our oldest daughter can't wait to go to school everyday and our youngest starts Kindergarten this month. She is beyond excited! Teachers and staff really care about the kids. Amazing PTO too. We couldn't ask for a better place for our girls to learn.

Bass Hoover Elementary School I like the way children are picked up by parents/guardians after school. The staff are doing an awesome job!

This is an excellent school! We moved here when my two youngest were in 3rd and 5th grade and they were accepted as if we had been in the community all along. The teachers are well educated and experienced. They keep the parents well informed.

Our son has been a 'Stinger' for 3 years now. He loves it. The teachers really care and take the time to keep the parents in the loop. I'll be sad to see him leave when he's off to middle school.

Bass-Hoover has a wonderful community feel. The teachers love the school and several have been there for decades! The number one focus is children and parents are welcome to be a part of the educational process.

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.
