Great school with an excellent faculty and administration
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 26, 2008

This is a caring school overall where the students feel important and feel that they contribute to a greater good. Not many high schools nowadays can boast that they do not need locks on their lockers. Academically, I believe the small size contributes to personal attention but sometimes detracts from potential courses available.

This is a great school to attend, everyone helps each other out and the parents are very involved in all their childrens activities.

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.
