This is a wonderful school. The principal, teachers and other staff are caring and supportive of students and teachers. I am impressed by the technology and only hope the middle and high schools are able to maintain the high standard set by LES.

This is the best small school in Harrison County. We are the only Apple school in the state. We have a brand new state of the art facility built in 2011. The principal has a connection to the school from being a former teacher at the school and have sent both of her children through the school. A great learning institution.

I feel this is a great small town school. I believe the principal is very people friendly, the teachers are helpful and understanding, and the rest of the staff is great.

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.
