My children attended this school and i had them transfered after one year. Lots of discipline problems and a couple of the teachers did not care if the children got an education or not.

This is a wonderful school. Both of my children love it. The principal is a great man. He cares about our children.

This school is well run, the principal is very willing to listen to and address any questions or concerns. I found the majority of teachers to be very willing to 'go the extra mile' and seemed to genuinely like being a teacher. The school has a DARE officer which has assisted in educating my kids on the dangers of drugs and alcohol. I would definately recommend this school--very clean, well organized.

About the tests

The WESTEST 2 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of West Virginia.
