all of my children have attended. Small school, close knit community
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 20, 2010

Rappahannock HS is a well rated HS. Students have so much support from the community and being a small community, we know so many of the teachers and they are all responsive to parent inquiries and supportive in academic studies and sports. My daughter is looking forward to attending in another year when she is in 8th grade.

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.
