My daughter has attended Melrose for kindergarten and now first grade. She has been challenged and loved. She has blossomed into an excellent reader and loves going to school! The teachers and principal are loving caring professionals who strive for excellence. My daughter's favorite class is PE- the teacher makes it so much fun (even without a gym!) We have had a wonderful experience and I would recommend Melrose to anyone!! Thanks Melrose! Allison's Mom

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.
