Bartlett Yancey High School Principal 2015-current

It has been an amazing opportunity to serve the students of Bartlett Yancey High School for the past 3 years. We have grown as a staff, school and community.  We have made adjustments and progress with our programs, curriculum and instructional practices and our approach in the way we conduct business at Bartlett Yancey High School. We are continuously updating our school improvement plan to target the needs of our students.  

We have added 2 STEM labs to our program for Math 1 students to continue improving our Math 1 scores and promote math and science experiences.  We have also added the Career Academy for students with challenges in the traditional high school setting. We have a new state of the art greenhouse thanks to community businesses, grants and community members who care about the future of our program. We have an awesome Animal Science program housing animals on-site. We have started and implemented a Parent Academy to engage and actively involve parents in the academic/instructional experiences here at BYHS.  We are continuing the hard work started 3 years ago in order to produce competitive students in a progressive society.

I am proud to announce that we have increased the academic performance of our students each year for the past 3 years. I encourage parents, leaders and community members to participate and actively engage positively with the high school professional learning community in order to provide the best educational experience for our students. Please join us in changing the mindset concerning education and support for everyone involved in educating our students.  We will have another great year!
