Did you know that this school was named after the women who created mother's day. So i think that the history behind grafton and this school and the other schools except tcms is what makes it so great.

I think that others should know that Anna Jarvis Elementry is a great school. We are a small community so do not let the rating of this site fool you. 4/10 rating? I don't understand how that number was acheived but I do know that our school is a great place for students to learn. I went there, my husband, 4 children and just about everyone I know has attened school here. They have wonderful teachers that have only gotten better each year.

Anna Jarvis has very good safty rules for our children and they also has lots of teachers who want our children to learn and they have nice PTO meetings to let us know everything that is going on and if you call for a question they do there best to find the answer.

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. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the test.
