My son came home after taking the Westest at our local Middle School and he told us that while he was trying to finish the test he was being badgered by other kids in the room to finish. Kids were throwing paper around the room and one individual called another kid a “F**king Homosexual”. Although the bad kids do go to the local Middle School in Shepherdstown, thankfully they all go home to other towns when school is over.
It is MOST unfortunate that Shepherdstown Middle School cannot be for Shepherdstown Elementary School alone. Jefferson County’s Board of Education busses kids in from Kearneysville and other areas where they attended elementary schools with problems.
Personally I think they should kick them all out and build middle schools they can go to OUTSIDE of Shepherdstown.
Am I being protective. ABSOLUTELY!
