Something terrible has happened with this school since the administration change. The students are out of control because nothing is ever done as far as discipline. My child has been bullied endlessly & to the point that I have thought of withdrawing her & homeschooling. The staff morale is so low that several teachers are leaving. I would never recommend this school to anyone until the school system corrects the problem with the administration. It used to be a great school, now it's probably one of the worst & the test scores show it.

Horrible school. The office staff and principle at this are terrible. My 7 year old was assaulted on the bus and they treated us like we were a nuisance. One year was more than enough at this school.

Point O' View is an excellent school for any child to attend. If you are interested in your child getting a great education in a warm and friendly environment, then this school is definately for you.

This is an excellent school and I would recommend POV because there is a lot of help and cooperation from the parents. Without their help, the teacher's job would be very difficult.

We love POV. We were very worried about sending our daughter to start 1st grade at a public school, after Kindergarten at a small private school. We have been very pleasantly surprised! Everyone I have spoken to at the school is polite, friendly and knowledgeable. There are lots of programs to recognize students for their accomplishments, Accelerated Reader, Super Citizen, Caught being Good, etc. The PTA does a wonderful job organizing family events, movie nights, cashola nights, Breakfast with Santa, to name a few. I would definitely recommend POV to anyone! We are looking to buy a house right now, and I am hoping we can find one in this district, because we do not want her to change schools! Also, my 4 yr old is in the preschool speech program at POV, she loves it, is progressing well, and is looking forward to Kindergarten at POV!

The principal, teachers and staff at Point of View are amazing. I have two boys that have come up from kindergarten there, and we're looking forward to our third boy starting there next year. We're house hunting now, and are looking specifically in areas that will let us stay close to this school. As good as a school can be. -MB

A fantastic school. The staff are wonderful warm people who will care for your child. I am very disappointed that we will be moving out of the school area.

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.
