I am in 7th grade at Belington Middle School and I loved my first year there. All the teachers are nice and understanding the Marching Band was a #1 band for 4 years in a row and trying to make it 5. He have great after school activites and sports. The student at BMS are nice young people who help each other. Belington Middle School home of the Hawks is the best middle school ever to me.

Outstanding school! I had three children attending this school at different grade levels. They loved it! The principal is very competent and has an excellent relationship with the students. EC activities are plentiful (Sports, bank, clubs, etc.) The school facilities are well maintained and clean.

The WESTEST 2 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of West Virginia.
