Posted May 18, 2005

My son was diagnosed with ADHD thanks to a teacher at Clendenin Elementary, which saved my son a lot of potential problems he could have had, had the teacher not noticed the signs in a structured invironment such as kindergarten. It would have taken alot of people telling me that my son had attention problems before i would have taken him to a therapist, but with a teacher telling me (one that could be trusted), he was diagnosed within 4 months of her telling me there was a problem. So i believe that Clendenin is a school that not only cares about your child while they are physically in the school, but a school that cares beyond that...into your home.

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.
