Attention Parents, Students, and Staff: Help keep your children's skills sharp! A new link has been posted under Quick Links on the left sidebar of the WHS site. The Smarter Balanced Practice Test allows teachers, students, parents, and other interested parties to experience a full grade-level assessment and gain insight into how Smarter Balanced will assess students’ mastery of West Virginia’s Next Generation Content Standards and Objectives. The practice tests mirror the year-end assessment. Each grade level assessment includes a variety of question types and difficulty (approximately 30 items each in ELA and math) as well as an ELA and math performance task at each grade level (3-8 and 11). See the link for more details!
Attention High School Athletes Interested in Participating in NCAA Sports: New rules will be implemented by the NCAA for student-athletes planning to participate in Division I or Division II athletics at the college level. The NCAA determines a college student-athlete's eligibility. It is the student's and the parent's/guardian's responsibility to check with the National College Athletic Association (NCAA) and their post-secondary institution before completing or adjusting the student's schedule. The NCAA currently only accepts college preparatory classes and above. If a student-athlete wishes to participate in collegiate sports, the student and parent are advised to meet with the school counselor.
