Awesome school! The teachers and principle are absolutely wonderful. They are always so helpful and willing to help in any way that is best for the children. My son has improved dramatically since he started attending this school.

Jayenne is a very family oriented school. Parents are very involved and teachers treat the students as they would treat their own children. Title I offers wonderful parent involvement thru after school programs. There are teachers there that are lead teacher in the county such as Kathy Rogers and Sandy Basagic. The principal is very knowledgeable and always fair.

This school is the best in the county. Parent involvement is really strong and welcomed as long as it's best for the kids. The Title I program is top of the line. The Principal is very professional and awesome. The Gym teacher should be teacher of the year. Parents move into this area just to have their children go to this school.

The Principal and Teachers really care for the kids at Jayenne. I know if I have any problems, concerns, or questions all I need to do is call or go into the school. At Jayenne they have a high level of parent involvement and the school always lets you know what is going on.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 West Virginia used the West Virginia Educational Standards Test 2 (WESTEST 2) to test students in grades 3 through 11 in reading, math and social studies, and grades 3 through 9 in science. The WESTEST 2 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of West Virginia.
