Glenvar reflects on SOL scores

Posted: Updated:
ROANOKE COUNTY, VA -

Roanoke County teachers and administrators reflected on the new SOL scores as they prepare for the start of the new school year, which begins next week.

"While we focus on SOL tests, we're also looking at a well rounded student,' says Glenvar High School Principal, Joe Hafey. "not just memorizing facts and figures, but also being able to apply them."

"It's a constant thing throughout the year," says biology teacher, Alex Wilkens. "We don't just talk about the SOLs at the end of the year, but throughout the year. We try to challenge the kids every day."

Last year, Wilkens had a 95% pass rate from his students on the biology SOL.
