Mr. Ty Stephens, High School Principal
Dear Western Family,
It is an honor to introduce myself as the new principal at Western High School. I am truly honored to become part of a community, which has already given me such a warm welcome. In the interactions I've had with the staff, students, and families so far, it's become very clear that this school is a unique and a special place. I am truly grateful to be a part of it.
I come to you from Peebles High School with 10 years of experience as an educator teaching junior high science and one year as a principal at Bright Local. Throughout the years I have been lucky enough to coach a variety of different sports at every level of competition in and outside the school system. I have a tremendous amount of love for kids, education, and athletics.
My philosophy is a simple one. Every child can learn and every child can grow. I have found that in my career the best way to achieve this is through having great student rapport and having maximum student engagement in the classroom. We have a great staff here at Western and my goal is to put the teachers in the best situation possible to teach and for the teachers to put the students in the best situation to learn and grow. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors is excited to be here. This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.
Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any questions or concerns you might have.
