We have been blessed with wonderful teachers for all three of my children. The teachers and staff all really care about the students doing their best.

My oldest son has attended Brookhaven for 2 years now and I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of his education. His teachers genuinely care about his learning and all go above and beyond to support their students academic success and to support the efforts of our very active Parent Group. Teachers provide additional learning environments beyond the classroom like Family Math Night and Field Day. This is a Reading First school with excellent leadership coming from our new principal. I'm looking forward to my youngest son beginning kindergarten there in 2 years.

My daughter has attended this school for 2 years, and unfortunately we will be moving into another school district. Academic programs are excellent, all the staff truly care about all the children succeeding in all areas. There is very high parent involvement and there is always something to participate in, this is a great school, and I am sad that we will be leaving Brookhaven. I am surprised that it is not ranked higher, because I have seen first hand the quality of teachers and genuine love for all students.

So far, so good! My son has been attending Brookhaven for almost 2 months now and we both love it! He is encouraged to do his best and rewards and incentives are provided. His reading and writing skills have improved dramatically. His teachers have been wonderful.

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.
