New School Year Offers Clean Slate

By Staff | Aug 10, 2016

Tyler County students can look forward to attending another year of school when the doors open this week after a long summer.

Last year, Tyler Consolidated High School seniors showed their merit in many ways. Their school ranked among the best in the state and nation, and was given a coveted “bronze” ranking by U.S. News and World Report. The average class ACT score was a 21.2, and they earned more than $2,368,495 in merit based scholarships. Twenty three students were eligible for the PROMISE scholarship. Three students enlisted with the US Marines and one with the Navy. Four students won prestigious EQT scholarships.

A.I. Boreman and Sistersville elementary school students did not go home empty handed during award ceremonies in the spring. Both schools achieved distinction in various academic disciplines throughout the year. Tyler Middle School achieved top honors in everything from math to music.

TCHS athletic teams achieved regional and state success.

And it is to this environment that fosters learning, creativity, academic and athletic achievement that students, faculty and staff are returning. Here’s hoping this will be another year for the record books. Our students have a blank slate, and a chance to rise to the occasion to be the best that Tyler County has to offer now and in the future.
