Blennerhassett Middle School is a West Virginia School of Excellence in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Part of Wood County Schools, Blennerhassett serves 550 students in grades 6-8. The interim principal is Mr. Jim Hamric and the Vice Principal is Mr. Jack Waugaman.
Blennerhassett is well known for holding its yearly Olympic festival, in which the students are sorted into eight "countries" (Argentina, Kenya, Greece, Spain, Great Britain, Italy, and Japan) and compete in various academic and sport competitions for medals. Blennerhassett was also one of the very first schools in the country to include the video game Dance Dance Revolution in its physical education program.
Each year, students are honored for their involvement in the school. In order to qualify for this award for involvement, students must participate in the arts (choir, band or theatre), sports, and academic excellence. Students who win the yearly award for all three years are awarded the "Tri-Star Award", a prestigious honor that students are encouraged to include in their college applications.
