Class size is generally 28 kids per class- too many in my opinion. There are basically no extra curricular activites. The PTO tries to run programs but they are not well attended and parental involvment is minimal. The school is way too concerned about the SOLs and spends way too much time harping about the need for students to do well on the tests. They seem to 'teach to the test' and therefore there is not a lot of time for students to be creative or explore interests. Creativity is minimized and regurgitation is overemphasized.

My daughter recently started to attend this school in kindergarten and so far I am pleased with the quality of the curriculum that they have and I appreciate the fact that they let you know monthly what your child will be learning so that the parent can reinforce their daily lessons at home. So far, this school has proven to be good at reaching out to the parent to be involved with their child's education.

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.
