Love them! 3 kids in elementary right now and I work in several schools providing counseling support. Great staff and teachers, and programs. For West Virginia, the schools are somewhat diverse due to wvu and large corporations in town that brings in more diversity than most other school districts in the state. My two boys are in the talented and gifted program (TAG), and they do a great job with enhancing their academics. I love all of the family activities the school puts on throughout the year. Great overall experience.

I have had a wonderful experience in the public schools of Morgantown and feel as if I have had a strong education background. The teachers have been wonderful and care about their students success. I am currently in my 3rd year as an Animal Science major and can say I felt ready for college. The sport programs are also wonderful. The sport faculty also care about their students success in education. They care about teaching students responsibility, making sure students enjoy the game, and coaching students in order to have a successful season. One thing that I didn't always like was the cafeteria food. I feel as if schools could create healthier and tastier meals for students. The schools are also sure to update their facilities, but I wish they would update more important things. Overall, I have had a great experience in the public education in Morgantown, WV.
Go to another state where schools are newer and teachers are required more hours of student teaching before completing certification/education with upon being assessed on performance at the end of each year by parents other teachers and county administration. Also, updates by teachers of parents and children in classroom performance/attendance weekly. No child being left behind is no longer in any category. Education in WV is behind.
