This school does not have any academic programs that I am aware of for younger students. The teachers do not take time to help the students that need more help than others if they don't get it the first time the teachers don't take time to go over it more than once with them they excpect the parents to do the work they are suppose to and half of the things they are doing in roanoke are on 2 to 3 times there grade level compared to other schools in surronding counties

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.
