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 school all together is well put together ever since we have received a new principal. Ever since he came along we have gotten our acts together and are working harder on doing our best. I am a senior so this year is very stressful to me but I have good guidance counselors and great principals and most of the teachers know how to teach well. There are some people in this school that make it seem like a bad school but we have beaten the other schools with academics (for example we are the only school on the eastern shore to make AVP) and some of our sports so we can't obviously be the worst school.

    I agree that this is a great school for the standards we are under. The teachers teach extremely well and learn along with the students. Yes I am currently a student and I may have a different point of view from former students but to me this is the best school on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

    This school puts a lot to ensuring that all children get the best education possible which is a large feat considering the lower income levels that most families come from. If your student wants to achieve they will with the help and support of the school and staff.

    One of the best schools in the area considering the low socioeconomic status. The teachers and administrators do what they can with what they have to give your children the best education possible.

    this school isn't a very good school i went there for 3 years and they have low requirements the teachers don't really teach much and the extra curricular activities are not fun at all. if you want u child to have a good education do not send u child to this school.
