Victoria teachers are not open to change. If it wasn't for the great psychologist, Mrs. Northington, my child would be left behind. She is a wonderful gem amoung bad teachers(for my childs grade)

I have volunteered at VES for three years. They really want the parents to become more involved, so if you can just give a couple of hours a week the school and staff really would be greatful.

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.
