WHS provides updates at Board of Education meeting


WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE — At December’s Washington Court House City Schools (WCHCS) Board of Education meeting, school board members and community members were treated to an update from Washington High School.

Covering topics such as improving communication, building and maintaining a positive culture, and being cognizant of their impact on the community, principals Brady Streitenberger and Scott Landrum, as well as the 6-12 dean of students, Louis Reid, led the building-level overview and conversation. They also discussed the important work being completed through Project Ignite, family engagement, and PBIS.

In addition to the building’s admin team, WHS senior Ade Hines, juniors Isaac Hood, Gretchen Reed, Gabe Perez, and freshman June Maddox provided board members with a student’s perspective on the best aspects of Washington High School. Without any influence, editing, or even prior review by the principals, these Blue Lions were given the opportunity to openly share their experiences and beliefs.

Emphasizing a supportive environment, they praised the positive atmosphere being cultivated by dedicated faculty, supportive staff, and friendly classmates, citing countless instances where teachers have played a pivotal role in both their academic learning and personal well-being.

Another significant theme highlighted a notable cultural shift at WHS, encompassing positive changes in policies, an increased academic focus, and the growing sense of community. The students also expressed gratitude for the diverse offerings of extracurricular activities that have fostered their love for learning and pursuit of individual purpose.

“While their stories were diverse, a common thread emerged — each student concurred on the profound and transformative impact Washington High School has had in shaping not only their academic journeys, but also enriching their entire lives,” said Trevor Patton, WCHCS director of marketing, communications and safety. “It was a great night of celebrating Washington High School and what it means to be a Blue Lion.”
