Posted June 2, 2011

When choosing a home, one of the requirements was that it be located in Richmond County in order for our two children to be eligible to attend the Richmond County Public School System. We have had one child graduate and the second will graduate, with honors, in two weeks. Academics and scholastic activities are well balanced. I have wittnessed first-hand the principal's interaction with the students. He attempts to defuse problems before they arise. It is without reservation that I recommend the Richmond County Public School System...the best in the Northern Neck and Middle Penninsula. Go Raiders!

About the tests


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.
