This is my daughters second year at Rockledge and she is in second grade. She is working hard on improving her reading skills. Her teacher has been fantastic with boosting her confidence and allowing her to reach indivdual goals. She also gets help from resource teachers. Rockledge has a great staff!

This school is great for the kids who are advanced learners, but forget about the ones with challenges. They have no patience for this.

I wish I had known about this school a long time ago. My son went through 4th grade and will continue through 5th grade. The school is very warm and caring. His teacher was open with me and kept me informed about everything my son was doing. I felt very welcomed at this school. The diversity is a plus. I think the kids at Rockledge are exposed to more ethnic backgrounds which in turn gives them more understanding and knowledge of the ways of others. Definately a great move for us!

Two of my children are currently attending Rockledge Elementary School. I am so happy about sending my children there for a number of reasons. First of all, the staff and the administration offer a caring and nurturing environment, which is especially needed in the primary years to foster security and self-confidence. Secondly, the teachers and Administration work hand in hand in such a smooth working relationship which is depicted in everyday school activities. I also like the way the staff makes everyone feel important and special in his/her own way. The staff and administration (including guidance counselor) respond to parent concerns/comments/complaints immediately. The staff is nurturing, moreso,especially in the kindergarten and first grades, but as the students getting into the higher grades, they start getting firmer and more structured. I truly love this school, love the education my kids are getting, and love the staff. They are great!!!

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.
