Message from the Principal

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! I am thrilled to begin a new school year with our staff, students, families and community members. Once again, I am looking forward to a year full of rigor, student achievement and growth, positive changes and the belief that we will establish high standards of learning that we expect all students to achieve.

At Chilhowee, we are dedicated to providing a rich educational foundation for our students. Our mission is to encourage each child to become a lifelong learner by performing to his or her potential in a safe and challenging learning environment. Our curriculum is data driven and focuses on high student achievement. We have high expectations for each student and expect regular attendance at school, effort in the classroom and to respect the rights of each individual in our school community.

We have an outstanding school, but we believe that we can always improve. As such, please continue to support our school through our PTO and Indian Athletics Booster Club organizations and take advantage of the numerous volunteer opportunities to improve the educational and athletics programs at Chilhowee. In order to achieve the maximum educational growth for your child, a collaborative partnership between you and our school is needed and encouraged. Your involvement with your child's education is vital to his/her academic success!

As the Chilhowee principal, I am committed to working diligently to foster an atmosphere that promotes academic excellence, trust, respect, community involvement, excellent communications and a collaboartive partnership between students, parents, faculty and community members. I look forward to the forthcoming school year in creating a nurturing, disciplined, and challenging environment in which all students can learn at optimum levels and become responsible members of society.
