This school is great on working with parents who have children with special needs. Their 2010 version of the Olympics was great and taught the children a lot about the events and allowed them to participate in mock versions of those events.

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.
