About the West Virginia General Summative Assessment: WESTEST 2 is gone, and the West Virginia General Summative Assessment, which includes the Smarter Balanced assessments in mathematics and ELA, has taken its place. Public school students in grades 3 - 11 will take the test between April 1 and June 24. The General Summative Assessment also includes a science assessment for students in grades 4, 6 and 10.

The test is engaging, interactive and uniquely accessible with questions that require high level thinking, look like real life problems, and are similar to classroom work. Most important, it offers evidence that informs action in the classroom.

Assessments provide valuable information to parents, teachers and students about where a student may need more help as well as areas of success. Also, the results serve as a checkup on a student's progress toward meeting the goal of being college or career ready by graduation. In addition, teachers use individual test results to guide their instruction.

Open Quote One of the best High schools in West West Virginia .They have a lot of AP classes and the teachers are very caring and they teach well. The work load is manageable and my daughter enjoys going to school. There is not much bullying or harassment.The counselors always respond within a day if you contact them and are hands on with scheduling and talking with your child.The principal's door is always open for anyone who wants to meet and talk with him about any concerns a parent may have. Not only the school has academic options but they also have a wide range of extracurricular activities form football, baseball, tennis,soccer,and a great show choir band. They also have lots of clubs and organizations.In all i am a very satisfied parent and I give this school a five star rating . Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
