Welcome back Wellington High School!
For those that don’t know me, I have lived in Wellington my entire life, with four generations of my family being WHS Alumni (including my two daughters). Needless to say, I am extremely proud to be a Duke!
I have been in education for 25 years. Before becoming the principal at Wellington High School, I taught high school math for 20 years. I began teaching at WHS in 2002 and made the transition to the main office in 2015. Becoming principal of WHS has always been a lifelong dream of mine, and I can honestly say that it is the best job in the world!
Wellington High School will continue to move forward this year. We are adding two additional Advanced Placement course offerings- AP Statistics and AP Computer Science A. All seniors will have the opportunity to take the ACT and SAT in the fall, and juniors will be taking both of these assessments in the spring. We will continue to support all students as they prepare for state testing and graduation. My top priority is student success, both academically and social/emotionally.
I know this year will come with its challenges and will ‘look’ different than other years, but we will be okay. As long as we continue to respect each other, are kind to one another, and accept each other’s differences, we will get through this- we just need to be patient.
As we continue on this journey together, please remember that I am here if you need anything. Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. I try very hard to respond to all emails and phone calls before leaving at the end of the day.
Thank you and take care,
Mrs. Tina Drake
