This school Is a wonderful school. Small classroom sizes and the teachers are wonderful and care about their students.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 1, 2014

This school is the best schools I had ever been to, Mr.Lorio, Mrs.Collier, every one of them, are some of the best teachers I had ever had, wish I could go back. This school has come so far, it has even been held in trailers at one point, and now they have their own rooms and buildings, they deserve it. Every teacher there actually wants to be there and they want to help you, i am telling you if you get the chance to go, GO, all you can do is try.

This a Great School. My Son has learned a lot. We are going to miss this school when we Move to Co. They do wear Uniforms. And Class sizes are small. Great Learning envirment. Great Teachers. They make you feel like family. Especially Mrs. Collier the Math teacher. But all teachers are great and they care about you.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course tests to assess students in reading, writing, math, science and history/social science subjects at the end of each course, regardless of the student's grade level. The SOL End-of-Course tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. High school students must pass at least six SOL End-of-Course tests to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
