Mr. West earned his undergraduate degree from Fort Valley State College, his master’s degree in Educational Management from Strayer University, his Educational Specialist degree from Liberty University and his leadership certification from Georgia State University.

Mr. West views a collaborative school environment as the key to creating successful teachers and students. His daily affirmations over his staff and students undergird his belief that if you model what success looks like to students and get them to change their mindset of what is possible to achieve, they will soon realize “they can win with what they have”. He believes a three-fold cord, is not easily broken, and as home and school partner together for student success,
academic achievement is inevitable.
