  • Focus on Early Learning

    Learning is a lifelong process and begins early for students in the 21st Century. In Mingo County, there are 24 Pre-K classrooms where basic skills and student-centered exploration begin students on their journey. That journey through early childhood continues through 5th grade with rigorous studies in English, mathematics, science, social studies, art, music, and wellness. Here, Kindergarten students from Gilbert Elementary have displayed their mathematics projects.
