Dr. Michael Martirano, State Superintendent of Schools, has set a goal for a statewide graduation rate of at least 90% by 2020.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires states to identify any high school that has a graduation rate of 67% or less. Fortunately, there are no West Virginia schools identified in this category. Our statewide graduation rate has risen to over 86.5%!
In 2015, 47 or our 119 high schools (39%) achieved a graduation rate of at least 90% and Wirt County High School is one of those schools, with a graduation rate of 93%!
In celebration of this achievement, a special event has been planned to honor Mrs. Dottie Smith, Wirt County High School Principal and Ms. Pope-Albin, Wirt County Schools Superintendent, on Friday, February 26, 2016 in the lower rotunda at the State Capital.
A big THANK YOU goes out to Mrs. Smith, Wirt County High School staff, parents and community for keeping students the focus of Wirt County High School!
THE MISSION OF WIRT COUNTY SCHOOLS IS TO FOSTER POSITIVE STUDENT GROWTH AND BEHAVIOR IN AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE STUDENTS WORK COOPERATIVELY. STUDENTS WILL LEAD, LEARN AND THRIVE THROUGH REAL WORLD EXPERIENCES WITH COLLABORATIVE SUPPORT FROM THE SCHOOL, HOME AND COMMUNITY.
