End-of Course Testing Information

I hope all of our students enjoyed spring break.  I am sure the weather will soon break and we will finally get some warmer temperatures. This is an exciting time of year for West Geauga students, as it is a reminder that summer is just around the corner!

West Geauga High School is in its final stages of preparing our students to take Ohio’s end-of-course exams. West Geauga High School will offer these exams over six days during a three week period. All students in 9th grade English, 10th grade English, Algebra I, Geometry, Biology, American History and Government will sit for their end-of-course exams. On testing days, students needing to take their exams will report to school promptly at 7:25 am. All students not taking an end-of course exam will report to school at 9:35 A.M.  Students in these courses must report to their tests on the following days:

Monday, April 16th - English 9, English 10 (Part I)

I want to make you aware of the Ohio Department of Education’s web site: (http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Testing). Clicking on the Ohio’s State Test Portal will provide you with practice tests and test information for you and your child.

Also, students can go to www.westg.org and log on to our high school website. On the front page of our site, students can click on this link: Student End-of Course Review. This link will take you to a test review site.

To help your child give his/her best effort, please make sure he/she gets a good night’s sleep the night before the actual test and eats breakfast!

On a separate note, West Geauga High School released reports cards to the Infinite Campus portal this afternoon.  Please be sure to access your child’s third quarter final grades by logging in here.  Directions to access your child’s Infinite Campus account can be found here.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have or for any additional information. You can also contact your child’s guidance counselor.

Cafe is a Special Achievement

By Ally Traci, Staff Writer
Is there really a secret room behind Mt. Rushmore ? (C’mon…admit it…you wondered about that after watching National Treasure). Does the government REALLY have outer space creatures at Area 51 in the desert Southwest ? Has F.E.M.A. really built over 1000 shelters under the ground across the country in case of a nuclear emergency ? While it is not as big as all those mysteries, some of you at West G might have asked, “What happens in room 115 here at the high school ?”  THIS we can answer for you. Room 115 is the meeting center for West G’s section of Geauga Achieve.

Unless someone has been living in a vacuum for the past month, s/he is painfully aware that school safety is once again at the top of the news shows since the tragic shooting at Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. School administrators across the nation are reviewing policies, looking at emergency response scenarios, and making sure the students and staff know “what to do” should a crisis arrive. That’s part of their job. But what about the students ?

By Cristal Robinson, Staff Writer

The 2018 version of the West Geauga girls basketball team finished the year with a disappointing 1 – 19 record. While no one likes losing, in high school sports, there are more ways to look at success than wins and losses.
