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.

    Did Not get help I needed. Teachers are vague and expect you to know it already. People are rude and always want to fight. Cant concentrate theyre always a conflict going on in the class. Would Not Recommend. I am a straight A student yet there I was failing. Not cool.

    These two reviews were done by the school I can almost guarantee that. Anyhow this school has to be the worst! I attended there and the teachers only respect the students who either play sports have rich parents or get the highest grades. It's disappointing honestly I understand that teachers get frustrated with the students but it was their decision alone to get that degree. Each and ever student should have the right to a fair treatment. Which isn't given there at all.

    Harrisonburg High School is a fantastic school each student is treated as an individual there are a wide variety of extracurricular activities parents and teachers are highly involved and the academics are excellent too. There is a lot of involvement from JMU which provides additional programs and resources. Furthermore the school has received several awards and the entire Harrisonburg City School system provides a high quality education.
