It does not get any better. Great parent involvement, great inspiring teachers, and a great principal. All of the children are well behaved, love the school and are inspired to learn. Compared to other public schools, this school stands tall and I credit the learning environment to the entire staff at Shepherdstown elementary.

Nice small school with good class sizes. Lots of parental involvment. My kids love going here.

I have a son in first grade who loves the school. The academics were too easy, and the teacher worked with him and some other kids to introduce academics from the 2nd grade in order to keep them challenged. The security getting into the school is somewhat lax. I've walked in several times to pick him up and have never been questioned. Other than that, I've been really pleased with the school overall.

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.
