Raleigh County Schools


The Raleigh County Schools district in West Virginia consists of 26 schools, including 17 elementary schools, 5 middle schools, and 4 high schools. The district as a whole is ranked 14 out of 55 districts in the state and is rated 4 stars out of 5 by SchoolDigger.

Several standout schools emerge from the data, including Woodrow Wilson High School, which ranks 7th out of 112 high schools in West Virginia and has a 5-star rating, as well as Shady Spring High, which ranks 20th and has a 4-star rating. Both of these high schools outperform the district and state averages on 11th-grade assessments. At the middle school level, Park Middle School stands out, ranking 14th out of 168 middle schools and earning a 5-star rating, with exceptional performance on 6th-, 7th-, and 8th-grade assessments. Among the elementary schools, Crescent Elementary and Hollywood Elementary are particularly impressive, ranking 16th and 6th out of 368 elementary schools, respectively, and both earning 5-star ratings.

However, the data also reveals significant performance gaps between the top-performing and lower-performing schools within the Raleigh County Schools district, as well as compared to state averages. This suggests opportunities to learn from the practices of the high-performing schools and implement them in the lower-performing ones. Additionally, there appears to be a correlation between a school's racial composition and its performance, with the predominantly white schools tending to have higher rankings and better test scores, raising questions about equity and access to quality education within the district.
