Posted October 7, 2004

As a former student at Hinton Area Elementary from K-6 grades and now as a parent, I can't say enough about what a GREAT school HAE really was and is. My daughter attended HAE from K-3rd grade and loved it, then we moved out of state. She now attends Va schools along with our son and our other 2 lil girls soon will start. Words just can't describe this WONDERFUL school - EXCELLENT teachers, staff, faculty, etc. HAE made learning fun. Virginia schools can't even start to compare - they are far below the bottom of the list in my opinion. Nowhere near the education quality received at HAE. I'd love to see my children go to HAE, middle, & high school, I'd even drive them 2 1/2 hours everyday if it was allowed from state to state. HAE students, you don't know how lucky you are! BEST OF THE BEST!

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.
