This school is on it's way to becoming one of the best in the county. They have some of the best teachers around and are providing a excellent education. They are providing my son a foundation to excel in his education and in life.

Excellent school, my son was a transfer student from another co. last year and I was very impressed! His old school (which seemed good at the time) isn't nowhere near as good as Brookview. They send home newsletters telling you exactly what is being taught ea. wk., parent envolvement is encouraged which is awesome! The teachers I've met so far are great people. I have 2 in kindergarten now, and they love it also!

My daughter just finished kindergarten there. She liked it really well and loved all of her teachers. I think it is a really good school and I believe the principal really cares about the education of the students.

We are highly grateful for the teachers, principal and all other staff at this school. We relocated our children during the school year from another state (over 950 students there) and have found that WV schools are a head in education than other states. We are very delighted for such caring teachers who strive to give each student the opportunity to acheive their goals and needs. Thank you for a great transition for our children and a better future. Keep up the great work. Submitted by Leslie B, a parent

I think the teachers at this school are among the best the county has to offer. I feel that the education my children are getting here is top notch. Any teacher I have had here has given their home number out if we have concerns to be discussed after school, and the few times I have called them on their own time, they have been extremely helpful. The school is large, but I think that is an advantage socially. My daughter makes new friends each year. I do wish they had more access to music, art, and physical education, however. Perhaps hiring more teachers in those areas would help.

We like the school but feel it is terribly over crowded. Would like to see the population downsized not only for learning's sake but for safety as well.

I love this school. My son is in 2nd grade at Brookview and I am proud to be a part of this school. The principal and staff are wonderful.

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.
