Scott Teays Elementary is a wonderful school. I have 3 boys that have & are attending. The teachers have been awesome in each grade level. 2 of my sons are in the gifted program & love it! One of my sons teachers even read a book alongside my son separate from the class & discussed the book with him because she felt he was ready for more advanced reading. It is incredible to see such a caring staff because school is my child's home away from home. I feel comfortable sending my sons to Scott Teays.

Scott Teays is an outstanding school. They are a WV School of Excellence, WV Exemplary School and National Blue Ribbon School. The building has been newly renovated and has been filled with new technology to meet the needs of 21st century students.

Scott Depot is a great place with great teachers, staff, school bus drivers, and the most wonderful students in a great little town. They are currently rebuilding the school and playground for the growth of the community to better suit our children's environment to get an education.

Scott Teays is a wonderful school, because of the teachers and academics. There were no bullying problems, and the teachers were nice. It is an old school, but you cant help that. I loved it!!!!

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.
