My son has attened greenfield since first grade and is now in 5th. It is the best school in Botetourt county hands down. The staff is amazing and the education is well rounded. They learn so much more than reading and math. They learn about life and other cultures and the arts. They learn about charecter and responsibilty.

Greenfield elementary school is a wonderful elementary school. We have a new principal, which my children and i love. One of my children has a few learning disabilities. They have a great understanding concept on l.D. Students and how to teach and help them not feel 'seperate'. I woudl recommend this school to anyone. We have enjoyed every year of our children being there. The teachers that we have had are exceptional. The music program is especially fun. (We are music people) the front office staff are great. Willing to help with anything. Also, we have a parent volunteer room that we can bring our children that are still home and work on stuff in there to help out the teachers and school! go dragons!

My son is in 3rd grade at Greenfield and I have been very pleased. The teachers really work well together from grade to grade and make sure these children are getting what they need for an excellent education.

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.
