JWES is top-notch. Dr. B is a wonderful principal (the kids ADORE him), the office staff is helpful and friendly, teachers are great and the parents are really involved. My sons says "school is awesome! I love it!" what more could I ask for?

It is a very caring school with great teachers, staff, and a great community of caring parents!

Their pre-k is excellent, Ms. Bagwell is superb. Their Principal Dr. David Burchfield is top notch. My issue is with their nursing staff. On more than one occasion, I have been 'left out of the loop'. I realize that some of this is due to laws, but when did we(as a society) get to the point that the parents feelings and knowledge didn't matter?

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
