I love Taylor Middle school. My children went there, as did I, and and my brothers and sisters. I even had the same gym coach as my kids! The school is smaller than the others, but it just give you a feeling of closeness and warmth when you are there. All of the teachers are genuinely nice and really care about your child. I couldn't be happier.

I love Taylor as have both my girls. The principal and her staff as well as all the teachers couldn't be nicer and more accessible, and there is a true feeling of warmth and community each time I walk into the place. The teachers for each grade all work very well as a group. There is a lot of history in the school and many of the teachers were once students there themselves. I'm proud that my kids will always be a part of this history.

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.
