this school is great! the teachers know how to teach very well.the also give free tutoring and summer school for kids who need it. and at the end of tutoring they give metals and have a pizza party. field day has enough activities for everyone and any parent or older brother or sister can come.

Stay away from this school. They lack parent teacher communication.My child has gone here for 6 yrs and every year I have had to deal with bulling with lack of interest from the school.

Kerrydale is a great school! The teachers care a lot about their students and do all they can to help them. There are many extracurriculars including Literary Society, Math 24 Club, Science Club, Book Club and afterschool remedial programs.

I would not recommend this school. There are a myriad of problems which include, but are not limited to a lack of leadership, limited knowledge of best practices, and inconsistent discipline.

Kerrydale Elementary has a great teaching staff and deserves more for the quality teachers that it has. It's a school that needs to move forward into the 20th century and needs strong leadership, commitment from the school system and support from parents. Education is not solely the schools responsibility, but they need to really find ways for the parents to get involved and want to be involved and that begins with Leadership.

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.
