My children transferred here from another school in the district, and they have never been happier. They were immediately accepted as new students, they quickly made friends and the teachers are excellent with them. I would recommend this school to any newcomer to the area. The parent involvement is excellent. I know what is always going on with my children. I could not have switched them to a better 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.
