  • Focus on Expanding Opportunities

    Our students deserve to learn and grow in the best facilities possible. The new Burch PK-8 School, shown here in an architect's rendering, will bring such a facility to the Delbarton and Upper Pigeon Creek areas. Students from Burch Elementary School will join their classmates at Burch Middle School in an expansion to the current Burch Middle School, which formerly housed Burch High School. The new facility will include brand-new classrooms, library, office suite, and main entrance, with reconfigurations in the existing building and a new bus loop in the front of the expanded facility. The new facility was designed by Williamson Shriver Architects, and jointly funded by the West Virginia School Building Authority and Mingo County Schools. Construction on the expansion is expected to begin soon.
