The Standards of Learning for Virginia Public Schools describe the Commonwealth's expectations for student learning and achievement in grades K-12 in English, mathematics, science, history/social science, technology, the fine arts, foreign language, health and physical education, and driver education.
These standards represent a broad consensus of what parents, classroom teachers, school administrators, academics, and business and community leaders believe schools should teach and students should learn.
Our testing windows begin in March, with the Writing portion of the 8th Grade Standards, and picks up again in May with the completion of the remainder of testing.
Johnson-Williams Middle School, along with all Clarke County Public Schools, believes that our success with Virginia Department of Education's Virginia Assessment Program reflects our commitment to all children learning at high levels. Providing an exceptional education during the middle school years is key to the success of students throughout their lifetime. As our students continue to improve, both academically and individually, J-WMS's first goal is to ensure the successful preparation of every child for any aspiration that they have.
