Welcome - From Dr. Carla Kent
Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,
It is with great pleasure and excitement that I extend my warmest welcome to each and every one of you as we begin the 2023-23 school year at Shelby County High School. As the newly appointed Principal, I am honored to join SCHS and embrace the responsibility of guiding our students towards a future filled with success, growth, and positive learning experiences.
At SCHS, we are committed to fostering an inclusive and nurturing environment that encourages academic excellence, personal development, and the pursuit of individual passions. We believe in the power of education to transform lives, and our dedicated faculty and staff are here to support every student's journey towards their fullest potential.
We pride ourselves on offering a well-rounded education that encompasses not only rigorous academic standards but also an array of co-curricular activities and opportunities for personal growth. Whether it's through our outstanding sports programs, vibrant arts offerings, or engaging clubs and organizations, we strive to provide a diverse range of experiences that cater to the unique talents and interests of our students.
Furthermore, we place a strong emphasis on character development, promoting values such as respect, integrity, and empathy. We believe that cultivating a supportive and inclusive community is essential for the holistic growth of our students. Through various initiatives, service projects, and community partnerships, we aim to instill in our students a sense of social responsibility and a commitment to making a positive impact in the world around them.
As Principal, my door is always open, and I encourage open communication and collaboration between students, parents, and staff. Together, we can create an environment where every student feels valued, empowered, and supported on their educational journey. I firmly believe in building strong partnerships between the school, home, and community to ensure the success and well-being of our students.
Once again, I am thrilled to be a part of the rocket family, and I look forward to working collaboratively with all stakeholders to create an exceptional educational experience for our students. Together, we will shape the leaders and innovators of tomorrow.
If you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I am here to support and guide our students towards a bright and successful future.
