Message from the Principal:
Greetings and welcome to Conway High School, the home of the Tigers! On behalf of the faculty and staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school website.
The 20-21 school year marks my first year as principal of Conway High School. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty years. I have worked with students of various backgrounds in New York, South Carolina, and Virginia at the middle and high levels. I hold a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Coastal Carolina University, a master’s degree in educational technology from Lesley University, and a post-master’s certificate in educational leadership from Virginia Commonwealth University. I am currently working to obtain my doctorate in organizational leadership from Grand Canyon University. My most recent administrative experience was at Conway High School, where I have served as assistant principal for the past eight years.
As the principal, I am honored to be a part of such a talented and dedicated faculty and staff committed to providing a high-quality education to our amazing students. This is accomplished by promoting equitable opportunities for all students and creating an academically rigorous learning environment that promotes college and career readiness through a standards-driven curriculum, student-centered interaction, and impressive extracurricular programs. I challenge each student to take full advantage of all that is offered at Conway High School to make the high school experience successful, enjoyable, and meaningful.
Each year, we work hard to continue the previously established legacy of success by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners. We will continue to focus on beneficial program initiatives, use data to drive instruction, and provide consistent curriculum implementation so that we can continue to increase all of the students' achievement.
Despite uncertainties of this pandemic and potential challenges, the 20-21 school year will be amazing as we continue to provide academic support for students, parents, teachers, and staff. As your principal, it is important that each member of our school community feels supported during these unprecedented times. This year’s theme is “Unleashing the R.O.A.R.: Resilient, Optimistic, Able, and Ready!
Please take the time to explore and navigate our website to acquaint yourself with the academic, athletic, and other extracurricular opportunities available to all of our students. I hope that it will be a valuable resource for you and provide the information you need to take advantage of the many opportunities to enhance the educational experience here at Conway High School. We look forward to working with all stakeholders to help each student at Conway High School meet their goals and have a successful school year! We are Conway and we are better TOGETHER!
To Our Success,
Tanika P. McKissick, Principal
