Principal's Message

  • As principal of Whitewater High School, I am proud to be the instructional leader of one of the premier high schools in the state of Georgia and the nation.  Our school is built upon tradition and pride that resonates in our student body, our faculty, and the Whitewater community.  Our goal is to prepare our students academically, socially and emotionally for their future in a global society.  We do this by facilitating opportunities in the classroom for critical thinking and problem-solving.  A variety of programs are offered that complement the core components of education such as fine arts classes, career and technical education, and world language classes.  We hold firm to the belief that every child deserves a guaranteed and viable curriculum that allows them the opportunity to reach their full potential.  

    Our school is committed to 21st-century learning which consists of the use of technology as an integrated resource in the classroom.  We utilize resources such as Chromebooks, connected classrooms, and online learning platforms that allow our students to be technologically savvy in today’s environment.  By strengthening these skill sets in our students, we have full confidence that they will be able to compete in a global workforce.  

    There is nothing that has a greater impact on student achievement than a high-quality teacher that understands students and works to build positive relationships.  Therefore, I am dedicated to finding and retaining the best teachers who believe in a growth mindset not only for their students but also for themselves as professionals.

    The Whitewater community consists of caring and devoted families and it is one in which I am proud to call my home. I am fully committed to the stakeholders I serve and I am sincerely humbled by the opportunity to be part of the Wildcat family.  

    Go Cats!!!
