The teachers are great at this school. They really care the children and their educational careers. I would recommend this school to anyone.

My son went here for Kindergarten and then we moved placing us in a different school for his year of 1st grade. I was so disappointed with the school he attended for 1st Grade (Three Oaks) that I applied out of zone for my son and my entering Kindergarten daughter to go back to Seatack. The school and staff members are pehnomenal. They are incredibly focused on students' learning, motivation and building self-esteem. The teachers are very available to parents for input, resources and feedback. My children have thrived in this supportive and challenging learning environment. We are military and moving this summer and I am devestated to leave this school and the amazing teachers behind!

This is an excellent school. My children got the privilege of spending two wonderful years there. They provide a very safe and fun environment for the children. I wish all schools were as great as this one.

I have two children enrolled at Seatack, one in kindergarten and one in fourth grade and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this school! both of my children's teachers are kind, considerate and very professional. My 10 year old son is a bit of an introvert and his teachers have really helped him come out of his shell. It's March and I'm shocked at how well my 5 year old daughter is reading in kindergarten already. I really can't say enough about what a great place Seatack is. Everyone from the administration to the cafeteria staff is friendly, kind and really goes out of their way to make your time there extra special. I'm thrilled that my kids are getting their education there.

Today was my Son's first day of school, kindergarden. When we went to enroll him, everyone in the main office was very friendly and helpful. The Nurse came in and introduced herself. Gary Jr and I felt very welcome. When the paper work was complete, The Principle herself, which happend to be the assistant Principle at my Elementary school, Mrs. Everett, Gave us a tour of the school. She answered ALL our questions and did a great job of easing my mind (1st child, 1st scool experience). Today when we took him, I was a little shaken up, we went down the wrong hall, Guess who was right there to point us in the right direction. As we walked in Jr's class the Teacher was very welcoming and Jr really felt confortable, that means a lot! Did I mention the school was beautiful? It is gorgious. I Love this school!Thank you!

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.
