I will be starting my 4th year as Principal here at WCHS. Prior to being Principal at WCHS, I taught Social Studies for 22 years at Oakland High School, a small school of 100+ students in east central Illinois. I am very excited to be returning to West Central and would like to welcome you, on behalf of the entire staff, to the West Central High School website. Our school serves approximately 290 students. WCHS offers many opportunities to excel in academics, sports and the arts. I am very honored and privileged to be the Principal of such an outstanding school. We have access to class schedules for teachers under the faculty tab, and now you can read the high school daily announcements from the webpage.
West Central’s excellent teaching staff and support personnel want to ensure that every child succeeds. Our goal is to support and encourage each child in achieving his/her optimum potential by instilling in them a sense of worth, curiosity and love of learning. If at any time situations arise that may impact your child's success or focus at school, please communicate with your child's teacher, guidance counselor, myself, or any other staff member. We are all here to support you and your student in the pursuit of excellence.
Being actively involved in your child's education is essential in developing a strong partnership between home and school. Take time every day to connect and be present with your child. Talk to your child about what they are doing in school and help your child stay organized, committed and focused.
Our focus is on student achievement and readiness for college or career opportunity. Ongoing tutoring is available to help with skill deficits and extra support for class work, as well as enrichment opportunities. Our staff is well versed in collaboration and team teaching, which allows for better instruction that fits each student’s needs.
The West Central motto “Providing Opportunity Expecting Excellence” is not just words, but rather something students, teachers, and administrators live by every day. They form the foundation for everything we strive to accomplish and what we hold to be true. West Central is a school where everyone shares in the responsibility for the success of all students. We look forward to working with you and your student because we are all in this together.
Here's to a strong year of teamwork, community building, and a commitment to do our best and be our best for each and every student at West Central.
