Welcome to Middlesboro High School!

MHS has a long running tradition of pride and excellence. Our “Yellow Jackets” have long been respected for

their achievements in academics and athletics. We are proud of our heritage and excited about the future.

The Faculty, Staff, and I pledge that we will continue to work with all stakeholders to cultivate a strong,

positive culture that is student focused. We have high expectations for behavior, attitude, and success. Our

belief is that personal grit, hard work, determination, good behavior and a positive attitude are integral to

success in school and life.

Our staff will:

• Nurture and sustain an excellent learning climate

• Provide diverse learning opportunities that will attempt to meet every child’s needs

• Involve the school community, promote diversity, and cultural acceptance

• Teach every child, every day

• Work diligently to keep our Yellow Jackets safe, focused, and prepared for college, career, and life.

We dedicate ourselves to uphold the traditions of the past, provide the best education possible for our

students, while striving to realize the vision of where we want to be tomorrow. We need your help to get

there. If you have suggestions for improvement or need assistance with your student, please feel free to call

or visit. Involvement of our Yellow Jacket families is the key to our success. Together we can be great!
