Registration Information

Welcome to JWES! We're glad you're here! We ask that you read through our registration information thoroughly before starting the process for your student.

Much of our registration process can be handled online. It is very important that families register students using the correct link for the school year for which the student is to be registered. There are times when links for the current year and next school year are both available as choices. If you are unsure which to use, please contact us. Please note that we require families to provide certain documents as part of registration. These are detailed below and may be dropped at the school or you can choose to e-mail them to us at jwesregistration@rockingham.k12.va.us.

If you have questions about the registration process, please feel free to call the school at 540-828-6081 or email our registration email address: jwesregistration@rockingham.k12.va.us.
