George Wythe High School

Dedicated To Excellence

  • Principal To all our Bulldog Students and Families,

     
    This has been a unique first two months of school.  I wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for the flexibility and grace shown, as we all learned the virtual school environment. It has been amazing to see how well the students have mastered the skills to learn virtually. Their resilience and ability to adapt, has proven to be invaluable skills that our students demonstrate everyday. We as a school, could not be more proud of each and every one of them. To our Bulldog families, thank you for your support and understanding, as we continue to refine and improve our instructional and outreach practices to better serve your children. We are grateful for your partnership and support. If you are in need of any support that the school or our Community in Schools partners can offer, please let us know so we can assist. I hope that all of you stay safe during these complex times.
     
    Joe

  • Click here -> "Spring SOL In-Person Parent-Student Intent Form"

    Standards of Learning (SOL) Assessments are approaching and we want families to understand their options when it comes to testing. To review options and let us know of your intentions for the Spring SOL assessments, please complete the survey at www.rvaschools.net/sol.

    While most RPS students are receiving virtual instruction, the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) and the United States Education Department (USED) require some tests for students in grades 3 to 12 to be administered in-person. 

    To reduce the risk to both staff and students, we have implemented robust health and safety protocols. However, we understand that some families may not yet be comfortable sending students to schools to test.

    Please complete this brief intent form by April 16, 2021. 

     

    Si bien la mayoría de los estudiantes de RPS están recibiendo instrucción virtual, el Departamento de Educación de Virginia (VDOE) y el Departamento de Educación de los Estados Unidos (USED) requieren que algunos exámenes para los estudiantes que atienden los grados 3 a 12 se administren en persona.

    Para reducir el riesgo tanto para el personal como para los estudiantes, hemos implementado protocolos sólidos de salud y seguridad. Sin embargo, entendemos que es posible que algunas familias aún no se sientan cómodas enviando estudiantes a las escuelas para que examinen.

    Complete este breve formulario de intención antes del 16 de abril de 2021.

  • IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING SOL TESTING

    Assessment Reminder/Action items.

    In January and February, RPS will offer in-person SOLs to students in the following categories: 
      • High school students currently enrolled in Algebra 1, Biology, and EOC Reading

      • High school students who need a verified credit for graduation

      • Middle school students currently enrolled in a core class (math, reading, physical science, and/or earth science) at Franklin Military Academy

    • Please note that all winter testing will take place on Saturdays and transportation will be provided as needed.  We will schedule limited testing on weekdays for students who may not be able to test on Saturdays due to religious practices. 

    • All students must receive remediation prior to retaking an SOL test.  

      • Rebecca Fox has created an SOL academy for students retaking the exam.  She will share the information during the upcoming principal graduation meeting.
