    Mingo Central captures first AA football crown with 32 - 7 win over Fairmont Senior

    Focus on Engineering

    Mingo Central Comprehensive High School is a Project Lead the Way certified school, and home to the first dual credit engineering program in West Virginia. Under a partnership with West Virginia University, students in Mingo Central's pre-engineering program enroll as students at WVU, gaining access to faculty mentors and engineering students at WVU's Morgantown campus. Students can earn up to six hours of engineering credit through the program, and through a generous donation from E.L. Robinson Engineering in Charleston, West Virginia, can do so at no cost of their own.

    New Policies available for comment

    New Staff development survey

    The county staff development councils asked that all regular and substitute employees complete a short survey. Please complete this survey by Friday, December 9, 2016.
