Posted November 14, 2005

My daughter is in the special ed. kindergarten, and we have been very pleased. They offer extended day, partial inclusion, and lots of enthusiasm. Very active PTO. New leadership has proven great, along with a huge slate of new teachers. Kids are very open and accepting of others with disabilities, and the community is very, very diverse. Anyone of any background would feel very comfortable here. Although located in a very blue collar, working class neighborhood, the program is outstanding and is equal to any that you would find in a more expensive neighborhood. I would highly recommend.

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.
