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.

    As a current senior of Richmond Community High School I am pleased to say that this school is one of the best decisions I've made thus far. Everything about the school is fantastic. The environment is so loving and caring while also teaching you basic skills needed for the rest of your life. I have created so many wonderful memories here and am currently still making them. Special thanks to all my teachers and Mr. Brown our principal.

    My student is an A student and came from 9 years of Catholic schools. This is possibly the best kept secret in Richmond Public Schools. Involved caring administration invested teachers are creating a great learning environment that preps these children for college and beyond. This is the best place my child could have come for her high school years.

    As a former student of RCHS it was the best experience for me High School wise. The teachers are amazing the peers are supportive and the environment is nurturing. Although the school isn't given the financial support it diserves it still pumps out some of the brightest minds I've met and had the pleasure to know. I'm proud to have been a Fighting Pharoh.
