Welcome to MFHS!

Mr. Mamone

Dear Students and Parents:

 Welcome to Martins Ferry High School and the 2018-2019 school year! The mission of Martins Ferry High School is to develop responsible and respectful young adults who are critical thinkers with 21st century knowledge and skills that will make them self-sufficient, productive members of society in a safe learning environment. I expect everyone in the MFHS community to treat each other with respect. Building positive, professional relationships is a skill our students will have upon graduating from Martins Ferry High School.

As our students enter their final years of schooling in the Martins Ferry City School District, they will have the full support of the faculty. Our teachers will challenge students academically to help them achieve at a high level. An experienced kitchen staff will prepare high-nutrition meals to fuel their bodies. The custodial staff will ensure that our students can function in a safe and clean environment. An administrative team has been assembled to optimize the functionality of the school, provide guidance and counseling when needed, and ensure that our students are well prepared as they move onto the next stage of their lives after high school.  

With course offerings from general education to college and tech prep, MFHS offers a variety of classes to pique your interest. We also offer extra-curricular programs that are some of the best in Belmont County. With options such as Drug-Free Club, Garden Club, Tech Club and Wilderness Club, I encourage you to find something you love and get involved.

I hope that your time at Martins Ferry High School is an experience beyond compare. I hope that you build friendships and create memories that will last a lifetime!

I am proud to serve you and my alma mater as principal.

Go Riders!

Joe Mamone
Principal, MFHS

College Road Trip

The Community Foundation has funded the College Road Trip Project for 2018!  All college-bound 9th-12th graders who have taken the ACT or register to take the ACT, and whose parents meet with Ms. Bliss are eligible to participate.  A parent meeting will be held on October 9 at 6:00.  Trips are limited to 30 students.   For more information, please contact Stacey Bliss at stacey.bliss@omeresa.net or call the high school at 633-0684.  Don't miss this unique opportunity!

MFHS students visited 11 college campuses in 2017.

College Road Trip Survey



Let's go on a college road trip!  The College Road Trip will visit Kent State University, Youngstown State University, University of Akron, The Ohio State University, and Capital University in three fall trips.  This is an opportunity for students to tour college campuses, speak with admission representatives and current students, see a dorm room, and eat in a college dining hall.  To be eligible, students must be in college prep courses, have taken or sign up to take the ACT, and have a parent attend the informational meeting on October 9 from 6:00-7:00.  All participating students receive an ACT prep book, a t-shirt, a backpack, a folder for organizing college/scholarship information, and lunch.  There is NOT COST to participate.  The first trip will be November 15.  Each trip is limited to 30 students.  The trip is sponsored by The Community Foundation of the Ohio Valley and Martins Ferry City School District.  Questions can be directed to Ms. Bliss via email at stacey.bliss@omeresa.net or by calling the high school (740-633-0684).

Due to interrupted internet service at school, interim reports will be sent home with students on Monday, September 24.  

Transportation is available for students in grades 9-12 to attend this Friday night's football game at Nelsonville York. There is a sign-up sheet in the office. The first 54 students to sign up and return a permission slip and a current emergency medical form will be permitted to ride the bus.  The bus will leave the student parking lot at 3:30 on Friday.  Students who are riding the bus must be at the school no later than 3:10.  The bus trip will take approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes each way.  The school will provide pizza and water for the students on the trip.
