West Point Middle school is an overall good school except that it caters to students that are A plus students. I would not recommend sending your child to West Point if you have an "average child".


Posted June 7, 2004

The school is small and the classes are small. The teachers are excellent. Discipline is very strict. This is an especially good choice for high achievers at the middle school level. The school system itself (Administration / Superintendent) is unyielding and uncompromising, which I find to be a drawback. Otherwise, an excellent school system.

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.
