My kids attend this school. We love it. The teachers are very nice, but strict toward academics. My children have such great time at school.

I feel the discipline plan in this school definitely focuses on the negative behaviors and fails to reward the positive behaviors. Teachers seem tired and overworked. The enrichment program for gifted children is dry and lacking innovation. The principal is wonderful, but office staff frequently are unfriendly and 'short'.

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.
