This is a quality elementary school for the area. The children are safe and the environment is worm and inviting. The staff all seem to have the best interests of the children at heart. Your children will learn a great deal and develop a love for learning as long as you stay involved in the process. These is an alarmingly low level of parent participation at the school, even though opportunities do exist. Over all, this is a great school!

I've had 2 kids graduate from this school and 2 still in it with one more yet to enter. Academics are questionable at best, school lunches are horrible, sometimes you get a great teacher and other teachers shouldn't be teaching at all. It is safe as in you must check in at the office and can't get in the school otherwise. So the kids are safe from outsiders, however the kids inside bully, badly starting in kindergarten and not much is ever done about it.

Two of my children attended this school at different grades. Academics are okay and the teachers seem somewhat competent. Safety of the students is first priority.

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.
