My daughter was in kindergarten last year. We absolutely had a wonderful experience. The staffs are very attentive. The curriculum is very well organized. The PTA is so awesome. Always has many after-school activities to attend. We love Art Club so much. So glad that we move to South Berkeley and have such great schools here.

I love my daughter's teacher! The principal is very personable and he is great. The staff is friendly and I have no complaints. I would recommend this school!!!

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