This is a great little school with caring teacher's and staff. The grass may only get cut once a month but Ms. Joanna, can only do so much. I'm sure if someone would offer to help keep the grass cut she would like the help. And as far as promised projects that never get completed, maybe the parent who wrote the review could lend a hand or come to a PTO meeting and voice his/her concern's there, or speak to the principle. Parent's let your voice's be heard if you have concern's about your child's education, the teachers and staff will listen and help.

Our family loves our little school! The staff is very caring and dedicated to making every moment of the primary school experience count for each child.

Small school that is a nice learning environment. However, if you have a child that needs additional help this is not the school. Also, the school lacks in technology training for the students. The grass is only cut once a month, promised projects never completed. If you have an alternative to this school I would advise that you take the alternative.

Small School makes learning more interesting. I also remember that everyone was like a family there. Everyone knew everyone. Fourth graders knew first graders names ect. When classes are small it is almost like a private school learning experience.

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.
