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 teachers are very concerned with the students academically. The sports coaches are as well. This is my son's 3rd year at WHS. He has enjoyed every year here. His grades have improved since he has been here. I believe that WHS is a great school all around.

    My daughter graduated in 2005. She went to Waynesboro for all 4 years of high school and she very much enjoyed her experience. Teachers treated her as individual. They contacted me frequently with reports of my daughters progress. My daughter did music drama art sports and Latin. The music drama and art departments are excellent. The basketball team is going to States this year. The foreign language program is wonderful. There is a multitude of extracurricular activities for students. The greatest pity is the lack of parent involvement. The same parents are involved in everything.

    This school is a rare school. It is not your best school ever. But it is a good school to at least get your child to be able to graduate and go to college. This school is alright.
