Principal's Corner

August 6, 2018


Dear JHS Students and Families,

It is with great pride and excitement that I introduce myself, Andrea Lee, as the new Principal of Jacksonville High School. My 20 year journey in education has been filled with supporting the success of all students. I have worked with a variety of students ranging in age from Kindergarten through, and including college. Most recently I served as a 2nd-5th grade principal in Litchfield, Illinois. In each of my roles I have worked diligently to foster positive relationships with staff, students, and parents. I am excited and eager to bring my enthusiasm and skills as an educational leader to Jacksonville High School and work with you as a partner to ensure your child’s success.

While there may be many changes that have taken place within the district, I can assure you that we are committed as ever to the education of your child. A well-rounded education means outstanding instruction, as well as offering extracurricular opportunities, and supports that allow students to develop character, explore passions, and make connections outside of the classroom. As your principal it is important to me that everyone who walks through our doors are excited to be here at JHS! This is the positive attitude that we must have so that we can meet educational challenges head on and reach goals together.

Excellent education is not possible without collaboration. During the month of July I have had the privilege of getting to know some of the great students, parents, and staff at JHS. These conversations have taught me about the history of the school along with the vision of where they see the high school in the future. I can sense the enthusiasm and pride for the school and community. It is with that same enthusiasm and pride that I look forward to becoming an integral part of the community and working with each of you to continue the success at JHS.

I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Jacksonville High School meet goals and have a successful school year!

Best Regards,

Andrea Lee, Principal
