Located at the center of beautiful Tucker County, Tucker County High School is a small “A” school that is family oriented. We pride ourselves on being student centered and balancing support and challenge to all learners. We believe that we are one of the best schools in West Virginia. TCHS offers a variety of Honors and AP courses as well as courses in the arts and technical education. Our status as a comprehensive high school allows students to access our career and technical center via a connecting hallway from the high school to the career center. Students have the option of taking on-campus college courses through Eastern Community and Technical College via the internet or onsite instruction. To complete the high school experience, Tucker County High offers a variety of athletic teams, school clubs, community service projects, work-based learning, and community- adult interaction.
Tucker County High School has adopted the High School That Work initiative, strengthening our curriculum through the addition of AP classes, differentiated learning, project-based learning, collaborative learning, advisor/advisee program, Gear Up program, and site-based management. Tucker County High Schools’ adoption of the senior project has assisted its students with the administration of long-term goals, planning time, and task commitment. These strategies have raised our standards as well as enabled us to better meet the varied needs of individual students. By raising the bar, we are able to instill a strong work ethic and a strong self-confidence level, enabling every student to reach his or her full potential.
Understanding the need for our students to be part of the community and for the community to be part of our school, we have established a positive and active relationship with our LSIC, Partners in Education, and local businesses. As our world changes around us it is imperative that we change as well. We must prepare our students for success in the 21st Century. By incorporating critical thinking skills, creative thinking skills, project-based learning, cooperative learning and technical skills we believe that we can achieve our goal.
