I moved to Winfield from Barboursville and have found that Winfield is a much better school. The teachers are more friendly, my child is learning at a much higher level, and I have found they really care about their students. I would definitely recommend this school.

I was so dissatisfied at how this school was ran and with the quality of education my child was receiving that I pulled her out and transferred her out of zone. She was so far behind at the new school! It helped me realize I did the right thing. Now she is on the level in which she should be learning.

The principal of Winfield Elementary, Jack Gordon, is exemplary. He has the respect of the kids, he gets involved in after-school activities, he knows the names of every student, and he has an excellent memory of the bus routes.

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.
