Colonial Heights Public Schools Meet Full SOL Accreditation for 13th Year In a Row!
All schools in Colonial Heights have met the SOL accreditation standards of the Virginia Department of Education for the thirteenth year in a row. Of the one hundred thirty-two divisions in Virginia, only twenty-two had all schools accredited. This places Colonial Heights Public Schools in an elite group. This success can be attributed directly to the efforts of our teachers in the classrooms, the diligence of our students, our parent partners, and school administration providing quality leadership and support for their staff members and students.
Thank you to all of our Faculty and Staff! Congratulations to our students!
