Standards of Learning End-of-Course (SOLEOC)

In 2011-2012 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. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

    The administration at this school is of no help and do not know information on your child when you go to a scheduled appointment with them. Will give you cell phone numbers if there is an ongoing problem but good luck getting a hold of anyone. I am still waiting after a week!! They will not follow thru with any problems. I have more children to put thru the hs and I am not looking forward to it.

    This school is filled with third rate teachers & administrators. The narrow minded-ness of these so called teachers is frightening. They perpetuate meanness ignorance & bigotry.
