My children attend Confidence Elementary. They are getting an excellent education. Confidence is a small school where all everyone knows each other. I think small schools make a difference.

My son attends Confidence Elementary and I have been very pleased with the teachers and principal. The principal runs a very tight ship and is a very effective administrator. Whether it is an educational or behavioral issue that needs to be addressed, they are always willing to work through any problems with parents for the sake of the children. The staff are all dedicated professionals that love their jobs, and this is reflected in the rich education that my son is receiving. Even though there have been stumbling blocks, so far he has flourished. I anticipate this new school year to be no exception.

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.
