The academic program is excellent. The teachers give so much attention to each student's needs and still manage to keep all the little ones in line so learning is not interrupted during class. Excellent environment for our children.

Wow, I used to go to L.B.Millsop. It was a really great experience. All of the teachers are great and are on top of everything. If you have the opportunity to go to this school, it is a privlige. Believe me, it is really great. Now that I look back on my memories, I really wish that the school that I go to now was more like Millsop. Now, what are you waiting for? Go register!!!

L.B.Millsop is like an extended family. The small size makes it more personal. The teachers are wonderful and caring about each and every child. This is truly a 'no child left behind' school. Keep up the good work. I look forward to another academic and fun filled year helping out with the PTA.

If your child is lucky enough to go L. B.Millsop, you are a lucky parent. This is the greatest of great schools. The teachers are wonderful and caring and the principal is always on top of everything.

This is the type of school that every parent dreams of their child attending. The principal, Mrs. Vogler is very caring about her students and the teachers are wonderful. I could not think of my sons going to any other primary school.

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.
