Mr. Dober, Principal, and the teachers in this school are totally dedicated to the complete development of the child. They are not only a structured, caring, and passionate group of educators, they offer an educational opportunity to these children that will surely influence them in a very positive way for the rest of their lives. Every child is important, and the teachers make sure that no child is forgotten. They teach democracy and the 'right to vote', there are educational field trips. I really appreciate the display of art projects and plaques of achievement on the walls. The students feel so rewarded. Mr. Dober gets involved with each student, and I feel that the parent involvement, along with the dedicated teaching staff can only lead to the continued SUCCESS of Sistersville Elementary School. No doubt one of the finest schools in West Virginia! A job well done! (former teacher in Tyler County)

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.
