Posted October 3, 2007

The school is very old and needs to be replaced. The Gym has no airconditioning and the locker rooms smell of mildew or mold. The students lockers cannot have locks on them, except for gym lockers. The students have only 3 minutes to get to their classes whether it is an outside building or not, plus their lockers or bathroom trips. They need a Social Studies teacher. The teachers have to take turns teaching their curriculum, plus a section of history. The school says they cannot afford one and do not have the physical room for one. The students can have an unlimited number of tests or quizzes given on one day by teachers. No special days or caps are given to allow an acceptable amount of tests, so students do not become overloaded and stressed.

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.
