Posted February 14, 2005

This school is a very well educated and practically perfect. I went there for my fifth grade year only, and all of the teachers were kind and helpful. They have a great music program and a great physical fitness program. I now play sports and am in chorus. This school has a lot to offer and increased my grades by 2.897%. I am now in the 8th grade with a perfect 4.0 GPA and am in 2 advanced classes. West Teays elementary school is where knowledge is gained rapidly.
