Suncrest Middle is the best school in Morgantown and it deserves the rating of 10 out of 10. My kid attended elementary school at North Which was not good so we had low expectation for Suncrest. Now we saw a big difference between these two schools. I recommend Suncrest to everyone.

You really need to send your child to this school. I wasn't looking forward to moving here, but I love this school. Mr. Napolio really cares. Tell them to be prepared for srs and ABC's. I'm in sixth grade.

Suncrest is the best school ever! I went to North for elementary school and wasn't really looking forward to switching schools for middle school. But now being at Suncrest for a while I couldn't think of being anywhere else.

I am a parent of 2 students one in 8th grade this year and another who is a senior my oldest went to another local middle school where he did not do very well-but after coming to suncrest he did a total turn around! has been on the honor roll all through high school-and is taking 2 college courses this year.I credit suncrest teachers and staff because,thats where his love of learning began! so,as a parent i say thank-you and keep up the good work! I applaud all the efforts teachers make in not letting a student just get by but,showing them that learning is fun and can make their dreams come true,as both my sons know-because of the teachers at suncrest

Some of the classes are overcrowded, which leads to classroom control issues. That's the only bad thing I can really think of. The teachers and staff are great. Great leadership and cooperation between teachers/admin. Staff show concern for the students. Quality education in a respectful environment.

Suncrest Middle School certainly earns its recognition as a Blue Ribbon School and National School of Excellence. The school is well-organized, has absolutely excellent teachers, and very involved parents. Each student is challenged and encouraged to do his or her best in all areas. The math program is excellent with opportunities for advanced students to take high school algebra and geometry. The school has a strong MATHCOUNTS program, with approximately 30-40 students competing each year for the four spots on the MATHCOUNT team. Several Suncrest MATHCOUNTS team members have represented the state of WV at the national MATHCOUNTS competitions. In addition to art, music, PE, and career exploration classes, Suncrest has a variety of curricular electives, like band, string orchestra, digital literacy, and foreign language (for 8th graders), and extra-curricular activities like sports (football, basketball, cross country and track), chess club, yearbook, and a variety of academic competition preparation sessions.
