New Creek School is absolutely wonderful. Everybody there truly cares about the students, from the principal all the way to the janitors and cooks and parent volunteers. I have only good things to say about dealing with this school, and I have had two sons go though in the past 7 years. Both boys were different, but the team at New Creek was able to get the most out of each of them. I just wish they could offer K-8 so the boys could have a quality middle school education as well.

I have nothing but good to say about New Creek School. My eldest is now in Middle School and I was happy with all of his teachers, parent involvement, and staff. The community goes out of their way to help at New Creek. My youngest is a First Grader and enjoys going to school. I am thankful for the smaller schools. The principal, teachers and staff always give their best. Plenty of fun activities the keep the children excited about learning. Thanks to all those that make New Creek 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. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the test.
