I have a daughter who just graduated 5th grade, and another daughter who just graduated kindergarten at Geneva Kent. I absolutely love this school and the staff. I hate to see Mrs. Faller retire, she is a wonderful principal. I am grateful for the quality years my girls have spent and will continue to spend at Geneva Kent!

I am a mother of a 3rd Grader. Brandon Brown. He has attended Geneva Kent since kindergarden. I love this school. They have great and caring teachers. My hat is off to Mrs. Vickie Smith one of the greatest teachers to teach a classroom. She is caring and determined that the children get the advantage that their education offers. The Principal Mrs. Goodson is wonderful. I have lived in Huntingon for 6 years and had plans to move to Florida. I reconsidered knowing it is almost impossible to find a school that is as exceptional as Geneva Kent. My son 'Ducky' loves it and excels. I am proud of him and grateful to the teachers and their commitment to education. Sincerly, Carmen R. Brown-Pryor

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.
