I recently had the opportunity to visit the elementary school in a professional capacity, I was extremely impressed with the leadership at this school. I was also extreamly impressed with the way students with disabilities were treated, my neice was born with moderate retardation and I would feel confident sending her to this school!

My daughter attens Ansted Elementary School and loves it! She looks forward to going to school everyday. The teachers are wonderful with excellent parent involvement and communication. Everybody is very friendly and the kids are well-behaved and respectful. I have been in other elementary schools in the county and saw a lot of disrespect from the students to other students, parents and teachers and they are like wild animals running through the halls. The students at Ansted do not do that, because they have been taught structure and discipline.

Was very impressed during my visit to your school in June of this year. We attended your picnic and met several administrators and teachers. They were very helpful and cordial when ask questions about my grandson Tyler. He seems to enjoy the atmosphere and instruction he receives.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 West Virginia used the West Virginia Educational Standards Test 2 (WESTEST 2) to test students in grades 3 through 11 in reading, math and social studies, and grades 3 through 9 in science. The WESTEST 2 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of West Virginia. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the test.
