Principal's Corner

Welcome to Alexander High School 2017-2018

Welcome to Alexander High School, where our mission is to provide a quality education for all students in a safe, supportive environment designed to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Alexander High School is known for its mantra: belong, have fun, and learn. Our unique asset is the AP Capstone Program which has a two-course sequence: AP Seminar and AP Research and complements the rigor of AP courses and exams. School year ‘15-‘16 marked our inaugural graduating class for our Capstone Program, which granted them admission to some of the most prestigious, nationally ranked universities in the country. The concerted efforts of our teachers and staff, our students, parents, and community leaders have helped to make our school successful in earning the highest CCRPI scores in the West Georgia area.

At AHS, all students can capture the spectrum of the high school experience. The upcoming school year will mark the second year of the Liberal Arts Magnet Program, which includes in-depth studies in math, science, social studies, English/language arts, and fine arts.   It is our belief that students flourish in educational environments where they have the opportunity to examine ideas critically, and read, write, and speak effectively which allow students to meet the demands of the 21st century. Alexander is proud to broadcast that that our AP Capstone students and the Liberal Arts College Preparatory magnet students earned a 3.6 GPA or higher. We experienced an increase in our ACT and SAT scores, and our graduation rate is 91%, higher than the state average.

While our academic programs have garnered us many achievements, our athletic programs have clenched several honors in both the region and state. We won nine of 16 region championships, and three state titles - two wrestling and one in cross country.   Braden Collins was heralded as the Cross County State winner and his coach, Brian Robinson received the NTFF National Coach of the Year Award.

Additionally, Mr. Richard Parham will represent AHS as our 2017-18 Teacher of the Year simultaneously with his wife, Mrs. Kristi Parham, who was named the Fairplay Teacher of the Year as well!

As we salute school year 2017-18, we dedicate ourselves to the pursuit of excellence. My administrative members bring a wealth of experience and dedication. They are Mr. Rob Alford, Assistant Principal; Mr. Stephen Beatty, Assistant Principal; Mrs. Kenja Parks, Assistant Principal; and Mr. Chris Small, Assistant Principal and Athletic Director.
