Dear Jasper County High School Stakeholders,

Welcome to Jasper County High School home of your Monticello Hurricanes.  It’s Always a Great Day to be a Hurricane here at JCHS!  Parents, students, staff, and the community share a special sense of pride regarding our school.  As a life-long member of the community I know the importance our high school here in Jasper County.

At Jasper County High School, we have assembled a great faculty and staff who truly care about your children and have their best interest at heart.  We are very fortunate to have a highly qualified staff who work hard to make sure every child has the opportunity for success.  Our rich network of parent support, community support, and the support of the local Board of Education, combine to make Jasper County one of the premier places to live, work, and learn.

We are very proud of what we are accomplishing at our school having been named as one US News and World Reports best high schools for 2022.  We also have been recognized in three areas by Georgia Department of Education for our Advanced Placement courses: AP Challenge School, AP STEM School, AP STEM Achievement School.  The entire community, especially our schools Pre-K to 12th grade, can be proud to be a part of this accomplishment.   Also, we have a sense of pride for our Clubs, CTSO’S (Career Technical Student Organizations), fine arts, and athletic programs here at JCHS.  Our students continually do their best to represent our school with a sense of pride and determination for the task at hand.  We will continue to strive to provide a high quality educational experience for our students.

As the principal of Jasper County High School, I believe that it is my responsibility to maintain and to continue to build a supportive and collaborative spirit at our school.  Together as a school community, we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in innovative and exciting ways.
