Mark Knapp, Superintendent, stated, “We are extremely proud to be recognized in a national publication like Newsweek. It is a tribute to the hard work of the students and the excellent teaching staff of the Wheelersburg Local Schools. Our staff and students are focused on continuously improving academically and do not accept any excuses for not teaching and learning each day.
