Megan McKinneyPrincipalTerry Parker High School – International Baccalaureate World SchoolHello Brave Nation,
I am extremely excited to begin my fourth year as Principal of Terry Parker High School. It is my goal to continue to cultivate a school culture and educational program that are conducive to student learning and development. Families often experience tremendous challenges today. As your Principal, I will seek to foster positive behavior, student and faculty teamwork, and cooperation in the school environment. My belief is that students make choices and there are natural consequences for these choices. They should be held accountable in a consistent and fair manner as well as recognized and rewarded for their accomplishments.
We have seen the positive momentum that the faculty and staff as well as students and parents of Terry Parker have worked so hard to achieve and we will continue to provide the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment. In order to accomplish this, we have developed a philosophical phrase: Be Brave, Dream Big Through The 4 A’s to Success: Attendance, Attitude, Academics, and Activities. I sincerely believe that by adhering to the basic ideas embedded in these four concepts, our students will become well-rounded individuals and ready for the next phase of their lives.
Focusing on student achievement, parental involvement, and community partnerships will help every Terry Parker student succeed. I look forward to a great 2019-2020 school year. Be Brave, Dream Big! Go Braves!
Megan Pardue, Principal
