If we were to have a sane, rational data-driven discussion in Tazewell County about how our schools are doing, academically, a couple of things would become clear.
- The high school with the best academic scores in the county (as measured by the Virginia Standards of Learning test) is Graham High School.
- Pocahontas High School's SOL scores are significantly better than the scores at Tazewell High School, and (when taken as a whole) not much different than the sightly better scores at Richlands High School.
- The middle school with the best SOL scores in the county is Graham Middle School.
- The middle school grades at Pocahontas are doing quite acceptably - significantly better than Richaldns Middle School or Tazewell Middle school.
You can read erport cards on any school in the state right here. But to make life a little easier, I've put together a little chart for you...
