Tazewell Middle School is the worst school there is. The bullying policy needs to be thrown out to the trash along with the bully box and forms for students to fill out. The bullying policy is bull, the faculty could care less about the children in the school. They don't deserve the paychecks they receive. Between a few kids at that school and a bus driver doing the bullying if they are asked what's going on they lie to them makes out that the child that's being bullied is a liar. No one in that school has a clue! When the bullies lie I'm told they said they didn't do it even though their witnesses to it. Do they think a child is going to come in the office and say " Yes I did It " they don't have a clue how to handle any of it. Tazewell county schools are a joke!

My child received SEVERAL 'F's on EACH report card throughout this year. He passed his SOL tests at the end of the year and still passed the 7th grade! I am appalled!! I guess that is the only important thing, there performance through out the year doesn't matter anymore ad long as they pass the SOL test. Why even attend? Just show up for the tests.

This school is the school that I go to and I would have to say that I do not know if I would like to send my children there. Some of the teachers does not respect the kids all that the care about is SOL Tests and them keeping their Jobs.

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.
