Not only am I a parent at Omar Grade School but I am also a former student. I love the environment my daughter is in while learning. I also enjoy the ways her teacher chooses to teach them. She learns and has so much fun at the same time. She is progressing greatly already, although she was very intelligent to start with.

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.
