The Beverly Elementary School is a family/community oriented type school. It has a child-centered atmosphere where students are encouraged to express themselves. The test scores are going up and the potential is there to become a school of excellence.

Posted October 20, 2004

Beverly Elementary is a family/community based school. There is emphasis on trying to get and keep the parent involved in their child's education. There are a few teachers that care about the students, however, there is a lack of enthusiasm about educating the pupils. A lack of technology exists in this institution. There is a strong special education resource and the school does offer band for 5th grade and choir. If the school were to receive more funding and some of the teachers would remember why they became educators, this school could become above average.

This school is a family-like environment that is working to succeed in strengthening the curriculum to exceed national standards. The PTO is striving to get all parents involved in their childrens' education. I feel this is an upcoming excellent school.

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.
