State Accreditation

School accreditation ratings reflect student achievement on Standards of Learning (SOL) tests and other approved assessments in English, history, mathematics, and science.  Ratings are based on the achievement of students on tests taken during the previous academic year or on a three-year average of achievement.

Elementary and middle schools are Fully Accredited if students achieve pass rates of 75 percent or higher in English and 70 percent or higher in history, mathematics, and science.  High schools are Fully Accredited if students achieve pass rates of 75 percent or higher in English; 70 percent or higher in history, mathematics, and science; and attain a point value of 85 or greater based on the Graduation and Completion Index (GCI).
