Greetings!
I am excited to have an opportunity be a part of the West Point High School family. High school years are a special time in a teenager’s life. It’s a time of academic and personal challenge, and a time to make important decisions about present and future plans. We appreciate the sustained support provided by our parents, community members, and local businesses. We pledge to continue to work hard to make our academic program even stronger to ensure our students are successful and prepared for the future. We sincerely believe that educating students is a team effort and that, together, we can make a positive difference in lives of students.
