I attended this school 1980-1985. My fondest memories of my childhood education revolve around this school. the teachers were excellent. In particular, Ms. Meyer, my 4th-grade teacher, was an inspiration to me. She organized our class' efforts to build a scale model of the Henrico County Government Complex. The success of that project served to remind me that great results are possible with hard work and attention to detail. The environment was always warm and welcoming. I can only hope that this spirit of excellence has continued to strive in the following decades. I would recommend this school to anyone without reservation.
