My kids have went to this School and now my Grandkids are going to this excellent School..


Posted April 12, 2012

Davis Creek is such an excellent school. The staff members know my children even if they haven't actually had them in class. It really feels like a family. As a parent I've always felt welcome any time I needed to stop in during the normal instruction hours. The teachers, support staff, and principal are friendly and helpful and have taken a definite interest in getting to know our family and making sure our kids reach their full potential academically. I really can't say enough good things about Davis Creek Elementary - fantastic school!

This is such an amazing school with a hard working staff. The school is always well kept both inside and out and the teachers take time to get to know each student and parent. The principal of this school is the best by far. She strives and achieves excellence in her school, teachers and students. There are several reasons that this school is one of the best in the state.

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.
