Central is Coming Back

While the News & Record was lobbing softballs at Dr. Grier, the High Point Enterprise was inking a Sunday story yesterday on High Point Central’s “renaissance.” (click here to read it, click here for the companion sidebar story)

Its self-described renaissance, says principal Revonda Johnson, is the result of hard work by its staff and students, and has contributed to increased test scores, meeting federal and state benchmarks, and improved staff morale. She describes Central as a much happier place to be these days.

An excerpt:

“We always put kids first. That’s what you have to do,” said Sylvia Cates, a curriculum facilitator at High Point Central High.
Cates said school personnel have followed the lead of Prin­cipal Revonda Johnson by roll­ing up their sleeves and getting involved with students to help reform the priority school.
“If we don’t have that relation­ship with kids, things are not going to change,” said Johnson, who almost never is in her office and often is spotted monitoring halls, observing classrooms and coordinating lunchtime chats with students and teachers.

E.C. 🙂
