Creating Opportunities for Student Success!
Expanding Our Information Support and Service Pathway
Indian Creek Local School District’s customized Career Pathway Success Plan prepares Creek high schoolers with college prep courses, technical expertise, and vocational skills via curriculum-based Pathways. Our district is excited for the expansion of our Information Support and Service Pathway. We will be providing additional courses and opportunities to prepare more of our high school students for in-demand careers related to information technology deployment.
Providing the Time and Support Students Need to be Successful.
Indian Creek Local School District is a public school district serving Wintersville, Bloomingdale, Unionport, Mingo Junction, the far western portion of Steubenville, and unincorporated areas in central Jefferson County, Ohio.
With new facilities designed for learning and engagement, a team of committed teachers and staff, a focus on social-emotional learning, and high-quality classes and programs that allow students to explore their passions and build their skills, Indian Creek schools are dedicated to helping every student succeed in the classroom and beyond.
Creek Prepares All Students for the Future
We know that every student is unique. Our classes and programs are built with the goal of having every student as ready as possible for their chosen post-graduation path. From their early years to graduation, Creek is committed to helping every student prepare for their next chapter – whether they choose to enroll in college, be employed in a career job or enlist in service to our great nation.
For college bound students, Creek offers opportunities to earn credits while still in high school in College Credit Plus. ACT/SAT preparation and tutoring and other college admissions support is also provided.
Career Technology programs at Indian Creek High School include Engineering and Science Technologies, Information Technology, Interactive Media, Business and Administrative Services and others.
Creek helps students build skills, habits and attitudes that contribute to their success anywhere. This is perfect for military enlistment, where our young people see the world, and proudly serve our country.
Indian Creek Honored for Healthy Efforts
The district earned its second Ohio Healthy Worksite Award in January from the Healthy Business Council of Ohio, which is a division of the Ohio Department of Health.
HCBO recognizes Ohio employers who demonstrate a commitment to employee wellness. This year, Indian Creek earned a Small Business Bronze Award for promoting health and wellness among students and staff.
“Most center around healthy food practices for staff and students, building environmental controls, health and exercise options for staff,” said district Assistant Superintendent John Belt. “We are thrilled that the state is recognizing us as a premier employer that cares about the wellness of our staff and students,” he added. “A lot of this can be directly traced to our new and renovated facilities.”
Creek Band Receives Great Support from Community
Band Boosters President Ed Cooley said a series of moneymakers conducted since last summer coupled with contributions from local businesses, organizations and individuals have allowed officials to purchase items including snare drums and equipment, and now the band is marching to a new beat.
The lottery raffle raised $9,000 with $8,355 in contributions raised through the Indian Creek Foundation and $2,200 given by the Harold McMillen Family while another donation was provided by Van’s Iron and Metal of Steubenville. The Indian Creek Foundation’s share purchased six snare drums with equipment, including a harness, case, outer cover and stand; the McMillen Family provided more bass drums; and Van’s Iron and Metal helped acquire three sets of tenor drums and four bass drums.
“This year was a big drive to upgrade the drumline and we appreciate everybody who helps us,” said Cooley. “You can never say thank you enough to the people who help do this.”
