Ratings

GreatSchools Rating

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

About the test

In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course tests to assess students in reading, writing, math, science and history/social science subjects at the end of each course, regardless of the student's grade level. The SOL End-of-Course tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. High school students must pass at least six SOL End-of-Course tests to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

  • Schools and districts across the nation are invited to participate in the OECD Test for Schools (based on the internationally respected PISA exam). This exam enables individual high schools to benchmark their students’ performance against that of their international peers. It is a unique assessment that measures students’ critical-thinking and problem-solving skills and gathers information about student attitudes toward learning and perceptions of the school environment. In each test subject, the score for each participating country is the average of all student scores in that country. The average score among OECD countries is 500 points. About two-thirds of students across OECD countries score between 400 and 600 points.
