As a student at Essex Int. school I want different tpes of sports availble to me at the schoolbecause not everyone likes just basketball. I think the more sports the better our school will get looked at! I wish we had a better track because I should not have to run in grass and in holes! I like the clubs that we have and after school activities.

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.
