Mingo Central Comprehensive High School
Mingo Central Comprehensive High School is located along the King Coal Highway, and is the result of the consolidation of four local schools. The AA school is housed in an complex which received an Honor Award for Excellence in Architecture by the American Institute of Architects. The school consists of a two-story academic wing, a music/theater wing, two gymnasiums, a cafeteria, and a Career and Technical Education wing.
The traditional academic portion of the school offers standard, honors, college dual-credit, and advanced placement courses. The music department offers a range of courses including choir, orchestra, guitar, and others. The art department offers standard art classes, along with pottery, painting, and more.
The Career and Technical Education facility is home to construction, HVAC, welding, engineering, graphic design, and nursing programs. Each program participates in West Virginia's Simulated Workplace. Certificates, and training varies in each department along with the intent of student placement after graduation. Each track is geared toward either college-readiness, or workforce placement.
This campus was constructed on a post-mine land-use site that was developed pursuant to the Mingo County Land Use Master Plan and subsequently donated to the Mingo County Board of Education by Alpha Natural Resources.
