Actually I am a student at Madison Middle School. My name is Kayla Roberts. Our school is a pretty nice school. There are lots of extra-curricular activities and fun things to do there. Most of the day is spent learning about new and old things. There are many cameras in our school to assure the safety of the students and faculty. We have fire drills frequently. We also have flood drills and an alert as if there was an intruder in our school. We have drug checks to make sure my fellow students and I are drug free. When we have school dances which are usually onc every few months where the parents help wih food and beverages and usually supervise the dances. Over all with my school I like it.

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.
