I feel that they really care about the education and wellfare of my child.

I am a teacher at WES and think that it is one of the best schools in the area. The new pricnipal has added a lot to the school and brought discipline to WES which has made a wonderful learning environment. Our SOL scores are always good.

I went to Willis when Mr. Phillips was the principal and he did an awesome job! I have heard that the new principal is really stupid and has some stupid rules! I give all the credit to Mr.Phillips and all the teachers they are awesome and I miss all of them!

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.
