Test Scores by grade


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.

    Chantilly is a great school. I moved to Virginia before my sophmore year the teachers were great with helping me catch up on all of the things I would need to know. Also the large majority of Chantilly High School is accepting of diversity. It is a great school academically athletically and socially.

    Worst school ever. Academically is it fine but if your child is not white then watch out. This school has a huge racism problem and the administration is extremely rude.

    Chantilly HS is a great school for all their populations. They have an AP program that readies students for top colleges. Their general ed program is as good as many private schools and their special education program helps students with disabilities to succeed in the general education curriculum. The new prinicipal is a personable leader who is well liked by the student population. I feel very lucky to be able to send my child to this school.

    Prepares you for college well with APs I was able to get into a top 30 college and got 35 credits from AP testing. Great extracurriculars and I loved most of my teachers (exception being AP science classes...). Still go back and visit them every year. There is an opportunity for every kid here from sports to drama to music. I also took classes in Chantilly Academy -- enjoyed meeting kids from other high schools.

    I fell through the cracks at thi school the teachers are for the most part to busy with the hundred or so other students that they have to take care of. If I hadnt transferred I would not be in College today.

    I am a Junior at 'tilly. Great teachers. Has many classes that will prepare you for college. Academically it's great but socially it's not. Kids are nice but there's too many cliques. This school can get very boring. It depends some people like chantilly and some find it lonesome.

    I'm a 'tilly grad (04'). I now attend virginia tech. The quality of education i received in this school is obvious now that i am in classes with students that went to other schools. This is really a great college-prep school. The ap and even non ap courses really helped. I love mr clement. Regular government all the way!! ) go hokies!

    In spite of it's large student body this school provides diverse opportunities for all it's students. The teaching staff is first rate and their are many quality coaches and a top of the line music department. The school could stand to improve it's diversity but even that is improving with time. Great school!

    One of the top schools in the country for good reason. Great opportunities here and an environment where students are encouraged to take advantage.

    I just graduated from Chantilly two years ago and I miss every bit of my high school experience. The environment faculty and staff fellow students all helped make my experience at Chantilly a memorable one. They offer a various amount of extra curricular activities that rang from sports the fine arts music theatre clubs and student government. I am now in college studying to become a teacher and I would love to go back and teach at Chantilly High in the future.

    I attended Chantilly High School in the late 80's and have learned that many of the same teachers are still there today. Any student attending Chantilly will receive a top notch education and will have all of the resources needed to succeed.

    My son attended Chantilly all four years. He received an excellent education both in the classroom as well as in extra curricular activities. His teachers were responsive to his needs and my questions. He is now a sophomore studying Civil Engineering at one of the top colleges in the nation. His high school preparation is serving him well thanks to the wonderful Chantilly community.
