My daughter went to this school for her entire Elementary career and there isn't enough room on this website to list all the great things there are about PAES. From the Janitorial staff, to the administration, and of course the teachers... hands down, they are the best the state of Virginia has to offer!!! The PTA stays involved throughout the year and host a ton of great, family fun events. As a military child, the PAES staff went out of their way to make sure she was well adjusted and was able to continue to meet the demands of the curriculum while I was gone. She was never just a face in the crowd and received the attention she needed from each and everyone on of her teachers. Because of their handwork and dedication, she is well prepared not only academically but also behaviorally to succeed middle school. PAES is the reason we decided to stay in this area of Virginia Beach.... that way our son can have the same great start to his education!

I did my student teaching at this school. From a student teacher perspective I didn't feel very supported in this school. The grade level I worked with was great, but outside that I didn't feel very welcome.

PEA is absolutely the best elementary school in Virginia Beach. The school is small, personal and the parent involvement is just incredible. The schools in this area are so desirable that homes in the surrounding area are sky rocketing. My son and most of his cousins attend or attended PEA and would 100% recommend this school for anyones child.

An amazing school. Wish it was around when I was a child. My daughter has been going there since she was in kindergarten. She is now in 5th grade in Mr.Bonney's class. School appearance, teachers, students, the whole shy-bang! I absolutely adore PAE!

My daughter has been attending this school since first grade. She is now a fourth grader. I am impressed with the warm atmosphere that the school has. The teachers are also caring and dedicated. The are mnay special events such as the annual 'ice cream social' and 'BINGO and pizza Friday nights' that parents and children can enjoy together. You will not be disappointed if your child attends this school.

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.
