The teachers and administration are friendly at this school, but that alone does not qualify a school for higher ratings. There is no control and I have witnessed this first hand in the school. The control of students behavior is as much as an administration issue as it is a parental issue. Teachers have admitted that they are not allowed to report all the incidents and misbehavior because they will be punished for reporting too many violations. Teachers have also told me personally that they will not continue to teach in that environmental. My advice is don't sign a lease until you see the school first hand while the students are in attendance. We won't be returning next year either.

The teachers that I have met over the past few years are excellent and care about the children and their education, I have met other teachers from othre schools that, the way they teach, are in my opnion being over paid but this is not the case at Enslow, I have seen the results of the students that come out of this school and no one could ask for better educated children. I hate to see them leave and get consoladated, why can't Mr. Bill Smith leave things alone.

Enslow Middle School is old yet the best school out there. It is the only school in the county that has its own pep band too.

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.
