Virginia Standards of Learning
The Standards of Learning for Virginia Public Schools describe the expectations for student learning and achievement in grades kindergarten-12 in English, math, science, history and social science, technology, the fine arts, foreign language, health and physical education, and driver education. SOL scores have become an important tool for the state to see how well the schools are educating the children. Students must earn the required number of verified units of credit to receive a high school diploma. Go to the Virginia Department of Education website for further information.
The Governor's School
The Virginia's Governor's School Program, which began in 1973 when Gov. Linwood Holton established the first summer residential programs for 400 gifted students across the commonwealth, is still strong today. With the support of the VDOE and the General Assembly, the governor's schools have expanded to not only include summer programs, but summer regional and academic year programs. These programs serve more than 7,500 gifted and talented students from all parts of the commonwealth. Each school creates a program tailored to meet the needs of its gifted high school students. Gifted students are able to explore and accelerate in areas ranging from arts to government and international studies, global economics, mathematics, science and technology. Students are involved in classroom and laboratory work, field studies, research, individual and group projects, performances and seminars with noted scholars, visiting artists and other professionals. For additional information regarding the Virginia Governor’s School Program, check it out online.
Magnet schools are ones that focus on a certain program of study (i.e. environmental sciences, art and music, as well as general studies). Contact the school district your child will be attending to get specific information on requirements and enrollment.
Alternative education programs are available in all Hampton Roads public schools. These are generally schools whose educational philosophies are different from traditional programs. Typically, alternative schools have small classes, social and emotional development curriculum and self-paced academic curriculum. This title is used officially as well as informally to describe a wide range of schools, so it's important to ask a specific school why it is classified as “alternative.”
