Test Scores by grade


Standards of Learning End-of-Course (SOLEOC)

In 2013-2014 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.

    The teachers at this school truly go out of their way to work with their students. These teachers deserve applause for all of their efforts. My daughter especially loved Mrs. O'Brien's class.

    i graduated from achs in 2001. i was noe of the lucky ones to participate in honors classes. school is 'behind the times.' i would strongly encourage any parent to be sure their child is in 'honors' level classes or higher to receive a good education.

    I graduated from Amelia County High School in 2003. When i first started high school there my freshman year was the best ever. After they switched the principles and Mr. Reese left it seemed to have went downhill i think. Other than that i think they school overall was nice and i did learn something being as Im in college now. If i didn't learn anything from them then i wouldn't be in college now. I hope they do improve their administration as the years go by.. Thank You..

    My daughter is a senior at this school. It has been quite an experience the past four years. The school has risen in quality over her time there. The academic quality has improved drastically along with the athletic programs. We have liked the 'small town' feeling of the school and the closeness of the community. I would like to see more advanced and vocational programs at the school. Most of the teachers are fine with some being exceptional. Like most places there are a few that I think need improvement. The administration is trying. Parental involvement could be better but is improving. Overall it was a good experience for my daughter.

    this school was not good at all. it was not safe we had many bomb threats students with knives and guns to many fights; i know all this because i just graduated from this school in the class of 2004 the only thing that was any good at this school was the athletics prgram. I wrestled for this school. the academics were not good at all because my college is teaching me things i was supposed to learn in high school and i dont know what my teachers know are talking about. but anyways thats what i have to say about amelia county high school!
