History of School:

Enslow Junior High School opened in 1917. It was named in honor of Miss Blanche Enslow, a teacher at Central High School. The 24-classroom building cost $240,000. Enslow became a middle school in 1989, and the following year became the first Invitational School in West Virginia.

The middle school is attempting to be what the junior high school said it wanted to be: a special school in the middle to meet the needs of this particular age group. When it comes to extra-curricular activities like athletics and other special areas, participation is the key. The middle school has something for everyone who wants to be involved.

Vision & Mission:

"Enslow Middle School will provide a safe and caring environment in which students may excel academically, socially and emotionally. Enslow Middle School will educate our students to become creative, responsible, and productive citizens by engaging them in a consistent environment that will empower all to reach their full potential."
