The Charlottesville School System

Charlottesville, Virginia, is located approximately an hour away from the state capital of Richmond and 90 minutes from Washington, DC. It has a population of nearly 50,000 residents and sits at the heart of the Charlottesville Metropolitan Area, which also includes the surrounding counties of Albemarle, Buckingham, Green, Fluvanna, and Nelson. Most of the students living in Charlottesville attend schools managed by Charlottesville City Public Schools System, while those living on the outskirts of town attend Albemarle County Public Schools.

Varsity Tutors can help your child get the personalized learning experience they need to carry them from kindergarten all the way to college. In today’s competitive world, it’s essential for your child to get an education that sets them up for success throughout their entire academic journey.

To see how some of the busiest schools in the Charlottesville area are scoring on state assessments, look at the following chart:

Charlottesville Test Scores

Students throughout the country face the challenge of standardized tests on a regular basis. From yearly assessments to college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT, the comprehensive nature of standardized tests can be overwhelming to most students. For students in Charlottesville, this means preparing for the Standards of Learning (SOL) exams, which assess your child’s proficiency in English, math, science, and history. On top of this, if your child is planning to attend college, they’ll also need to complete electives like biology, physics, chemistry, economics, and more – all of which can be challenging without the help of a personal Charlottesville tutor.

Private tutoring is great for helping your child prepare for tests. However, working with a personal tutor offers so much more than just test prep. A tutor can help a student develop strong study habits and organizational skills, think critically, and apply what they learn in class to solve problems. As a result, your child can build the learning skills they need to be successful in school and beyond.

One might think that living in a small community around Charlottesville means that students aren’t always going to get the same cutting-edge resources they’d receive in bigger cities like Richmond and Washington, DC. However, Charlottesville schools perform quite well against state averages:

Charlottesville High School 1 NA 76%
Albemarle High School NA NA 84%
Western Albemarle High School NA NA 89%
Monticello High School NA NA 64%

Another great thing about Charlottesville schools is their low classroom sizes. Far below the state average, most classrooms have between 13 to 15 students.

Session Summaries by Tutors

Tutoring review by Ingrid in Charlottesville, VA
Today we worked on scatter plots, specifically how to graph and interpret them. I also introduced her to the concept of surface area for a cylinder, and we reviewed the formula with practice problems.

Tutoring review by Jacob in Charlottesville, VA
We went over chapter 8, Political Parties, for the upcoming Political Science test. Tomorrow I will quiz him over chapter 7. I encouraged him to take notes, study and prepare. We made flashcards he can use if he wishes, and he may also want to try listening to the material on audio. I can provide suggestions and give some accountability, but the end result will depend on him.

Tutoring review by Anne in Charlottesville, VA
The student had been out sick for a few days so we focused on catching her up on the missed material in order to prepare for a quiz. We completed her review packet and worked similar problems from the book with a focus on concepts that had given her trouble in the past.

Tutoring review by Travis in Charlottesville, VA
During this lesson the student and I focused on geometric properties of triangles. He was able to apply various formulas to find the perimeter, missing sides and hypotenuse of scalene, isosceles and equilateral triangles. I've had a great experience working with this student, and I'm extremely confident that he has an exceptionally bright future ahead of him.

Tutoring review by Jesse in Charlottesville, VA
We went over exponential growth and decay functions and their graphing and plotting for a project the student had. He seems eager to learn the material; however, I feel he's having a hard time grasping the concepts. I would suggest a very hands-on approach for him and a face to face one on one tutor if possible.

Tutoring review by Jesse in Charlottesville, VA
The student came with questions. We spent a lot of time going over calculator functions (she uses a TI-89, which I am not as familiar with) and talking about Chi-square tests. She is anxious about an upcoming quiz and a two-part final exam next week. We will likely meet twice next week in preparation.
