I expected more. My child was in 6th grade and even though has gain new knowledge over the last year many opportunities to really stretch and challenge him were missed. All test were mutiple choice, many on the computer. He had one essay in Civics class, but no other required book report, long writing assignments the whole year. He stayed on honor roll with little effort and made pass advanced scores on the SOLs with no extra preparation. Calculator use was allowed and insisted upon even after an unheathy dependance was noted by parent. He is a bright kid but I don't think he had to work hard enough for the grades and test scores. He leaves this year with an unrealistic expectation of how much effort is involved in earning an A. The teachers were very kind and willing to meet with you to discuss concerns.

There are some wonderful teachers here and a great principal. The PTA is very strong and parents are involved. The only drawback is that it is crowded. Although they do have portables, my daughter thinks they're great since she gets to go outside instead of being "stuck in the classrooms all day." She would like me to change my rating to 5 stars. She loves the school.
