This school was very disappointing with regards to communication efforts on the part of the administration. In fact, there was hardly any communication with them because they very rarely returned phone calls even though it had to do with health and safety issues within the school. After our experience there, I had numerous parents come up to me and say that they were dealing with the same thing as well. The teachers were great but the administration was very disappointing.

My child is in the eighth grade at FCMS and we have mixed feelings. There are some wonderful teachers and a few who seem to be inconvenieced by questions from children who need help. We are considering a local private school because of our disappointment.

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.
