Adamston Elementary is one of the best schools in Harrison county. All of their students are polite and are very intelligent. Also all the teachers teach their kids perfectly. They are also taught just the way they need to be to go to a good collage and get a good job.

I pulled my child form another school and put my child in this school. I have no regrets about this i thank out of all the schools i have been to this rates number one. I love the teachers here. The Principal is the best he treats the kids like they were his very own.I have never seen anyone care that much the man needs an award for how well he does and how much he cares and the teachers are the same way the best .school around

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.
