I attended and have had three children that have or are attending this school. West Liberty Salem (WL-S) was the first in the county to achieve the status of excellent as awarded by the state. They constantly rank at the top in county science fairs and other outside activities. Parents and students are constantly at the school after hours participating in additional activities. I noticed that in the halls they listed several goals which one stated was; to have 3 months operating expenses in reserve . I thought this is exceptional that they considered not just academic goals but financial ones also. You can t go wrong with this school.
