My children transferred here from another school district near the Pittsburgh area. They could have skipped a grade the curriculum was so poor. There is no art, drama, or music. The staff is impolite and incompetent. There are few teachers that have a passion for teaching there. I have seen my children go from being excited about learning, to sailing through making A's without even havin to try, barely commenting on anything "good" that happened at school today.

I want to give my review on weir high school because i graduated there and my son goes to this school. for any of the parents reading this the city of weirton is pretty much a safe place for your child to be the school are normal schools and I am very picky where my children attend school. I live here and in Florida and weir high, weir middle, weirton heights and any other school in weirton is pretty much good places for your child sure the schools encourage foot ball because in the winter there isn't muchelse to do here. like any where else you have winter. i am writing this because parents look for these reviews when moving and weirton is more safe than Pittsburgh Tampa or Atalanta schools are.

Weir High doen't care about anything but sports at their school. Unless you are sports-related, they do not give money to the cause. The arts in the school have suffered dearly for this. Drama classes have to give their plays during school time, which means parents can't usually attend because they're working. Art students are no longer encouraged to display their work. Literary students no longer have a magazine they can put out. Journalism students no longer work on the yearbook staff or write a weekly paper. Band students are squished into a small room. Dance students are forbidden to use the gym and are forced to use the theater stage, which is torn up and splintered, while the gym floor has been refurbished three times in the past five years. Various language classes are promised, only to never come to be realized. Weir High has no love for arts. Period.
