Welcome to the West Iredell High School website. WIHS serves roughly 900 students in grades 9-12 and is part of the Iredell-Statesville School District. We are located in the western region of Iredell County, located between the cities of Statesville and Hickory, North Carolina. Students here are offered an extensive number of curricular and extra-curricular programs creating countless opportunities for our students. Our number one goal is to help prepare our children for the next phase of their lives after high school.

    West Iredell High School is a wonderful place to teach and learn. An important contributor to the schools greatness is the strong support from the parents and guardians, the school personnel, district administration and the board of education. The collaborative effort among all the constituents is critical to our advancement and the advancement of our children. 

    Developing our youth is a team effort. Our faculty and staff earnestly develop our students’ qualities of scholarship, character, citizenship, and service. We are so grateful to the families for maintaining a similar focus, sending a consistent message to our youth.  

    As you browse the pages of this website, you will notice the wealth of opportunities offered to our students. I encourage students to take advantage of the possibilities and become involved in the extracurricular activities that interest them. When students become involved in sports, music, drama, and school sponsored clubs, scholastic achievement  improves academic achievement. Becoming involved teaches our students to budget their time, keeps them involved in productive activities, and holds them in structured, supervised settings with school aged peers with similar values and goals. 

    On behalf of the entire West Iredell High School faculty, thank you for supporting our high school.  We hope you enjoy our webpage and the information it provides. Please feel free to contact us with other information if you wish.

    I'm originally from Binghamton, New York.  I began my college education in the capital of New York, at The University of Albany.  There I earned a B.A. in History and a minor in Business Administration.  After graduating, I was accepted into Sage Graduate School, also in Albany.  There I earned a Masters in the Art of Teaching with a concentration in History.  While working on my Masters degree I was hired by the college and worked there as an administrator.  In 2011, I completed a post-masters degree in school administration.  Prior to that in 2007 I moved to North Carolina and worked at Statesville High School for five years as a social studies teacher and varsity soccer coach.  I enjoy fishing, hunting, being outdoors, and traveling with my wife and children.  I look forward to a great school year where we will continue to provide the best opportunities available for our students!!
