Welcome to South Harrison Middle School

Home of the Hawks!

We are located in rural Lost Creek, WV.  There are 249 students combined from 6th, 7th and 8th grade. Our school consists of one principal, a guidance counselor, one secretary and 29 other staff memebers that include teachers, custodians, and aides. 

History of our school:

     In 1965, Lost Creek High School and West Milford's Unidis High School were consolidated to create South Harrison High School.  This new school was a grade 7-12 facility.  In the summer of 1996 the Harrison County Board members officially seperated South Harrison High School and South Harrison Middle School into two facilities.

     In 2006, the Harrison County Board voted and once again placed the high school and middle school under one administration.

     Again in 2010, the Harrison County Board members voted to once again split the High School and Middle School into two seperate facilites.

Hawk Expectations

Parents, below is the testing schedule that we (and all the other schools in the county) will be following for our yearly state testing.  This used to be called Smarter Balance and is now called AIR.  Please be mindful of students getting full rest and being on time to school.  Testing is scheduled for each of these mornings and has a recommendation time of approximately 2 hours, but since it is an untimed test we have to be prepared for students to take as long as they need.  Therefore if you could minimize appointments on these days or if you must have them scheduled for the afternoon it would greatly benefit your student and our school. Thank you.
