I know w a principal like Mark Adkins this school is the very best choice. My child transferred mid-year which is a difficult transition, however the staff, students & parents all, made it a very pleasant experience. My child is still excited every morning to get to school, & that's a blessing since she would do anything to delay going to her previous school. I'm confident she's happy & in good hands when I take her to school each day & that's worth more to me than any test scores ever could! Plus parents r always welcome & encouraged to actively participate in their child's education both @ school during regular instruction time & during extracurricular activities that r usually the only option we parents have to get involved! Everything about West Chapmanville Grade School is awesome in my opinion, except my child says the playground could use some monkey bars!

We love West. The staff goes out of their way for the kids. My daughter is in her 3rd year at the school. She loves it and wakes up every day looking forward to going back.

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.
