 Article by EHHS Principal Jennifer Strawderman:

 East Hardy High School, in Baker, WV, opened in 1979 and developed a culture of academic success that

has culminated in its second recognition as a West Virginia School of Excellence. East Hardy High was the

only high school in the state to achieve recognition as a High Performing Reward School and a High

Progress Reward School. This achievement is even more remarkable considering that it was

accomplished during a school year in which major construction and renovation was taking place. The

four-tiered pyramid of success at East Hardy High School is topped off with an administrative staff that

holds itself, the teaching and support staff, and the students accountable. As a result of this focus on

accountability, the teaching and support staff function as a team and quickly establish this relationship

with new team members. Student success is the number one priority of the school, and the staff makes

helping students access knowledge and 21st century learning skills and fostering a vision of a successful

life gained through hard work a personal goal. The third layer of the pyramid is, of course, the students

themselves. The vision of the staff becomes reality because the students buy into the goals and believe

that if they contribute their best efforts, the school will continue to prosper and the students will

personally benefit. The wide base at the bottom of the pyramid that supports it all is the school

community. Parent and alumni support is vital in the ongoing success of the school. The two year

physical facelift of the school is complete, and the building is a top-notch facility. However,

it is the four-tiered structure of academic success that has already been established that will continue to

promote the excellence achieved at East Hardy High School.
