I have been a teacher at this school for over 20 years. It is an excellent school. I don't say this because I teach there but because our school does an excellent job of involving parents in our school. Our parents feel comfortable in our school and are active participants. They make a big difference because they show their children that education is important and this school does a good job teaching you.

As a former student of Hodgesville Elementary School I rate it Excellent. It is filled with a caring staff (teachers, cooks, etc) that lay the educational foundation for a successful future

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