Principal's Page

Welcome to Heyworth Jr. Sr. High School!  I have had the privilege of serving as principal of our 7th-12th grade building for five years now. Serving our families of Heyworth has truly been a rewarding experience; I am proud to say that this is the best staff I have ever worked with. As a team, we support and nurture our students to meet their individual needs. Because of this team approach we have been able to implement classes and programs that were developed based on student interests, such as our History Through Film class. We serve outstanding families that value education and are committed to the success of our students. The support of the community has been vital to our success. Although Heyworth is a small town, we have big goals to provide our families with the absolute best educational experience possible which includes educational opportunities that are usually afforded to larger school districts.


Each year we assess our programs to ensure that we are offering our students rigorous coursework, college credit, accredited career and technical applications, and elective courses that fulfill their interests.


Based on our assessments and surveys from the previous school year, we are making some changes to our curriculum and course offerings. The 21-22 school year will provide students with the most dual credit courses we have ever offered at the high school; we offer the first ever Spanish dual credit course through Heartland Community College. We will continue to enhance our Advanced Placement program and we will continue to work with the Bloomington Area Career Center to provide our students with career and technical learning. Video Production, Agricultural Sciences, Journalism and Entrepreneurship are some of the great technical classes we provide on campus. We are extremely proud to offer STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) to all of our Jr. High students.


I look forward to continuing to serve our Heyworth families as the Jr. Sr. High School principal. My door is always open to any ideas, concerns, or compliments!  Please do not hesitate to email or call me.
