Van A. Phillips, Principal

We welcome you and your children to Center Point High School! I am immensely excited about the  2017-2018 school year.  I look forward to working with each of you as we meet and advance the diverse learning needs of all of our students.   ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­We have chosen “We Came. We Saw. We Conquered. We Won! as our theme for the year school year. This theme conveys our diligence in providing a strong learning environment for our students and it articulates our unrelenting commitment to advancing our academic pursuits. Despite many curricula renovations, our team persisted and we are recognized as a “School on the Move”.

We will begin this new year focusing on Alabama’s College and Career Ready Standards, PLAN, ACT and Webb’s Depth of Knowledge.   Additionally, we will revisit our academic goals and converge our 2018 Alabama Continuous Improvement Plan (ACIP) with the Alabama College and Career Ready Standards Initiative.

All teachers will continue to engage in weekly Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) These meetings will demand quick responses to questions:                                                                                                      

 1. What do we want students to learn?

 2. How do we know that they have learned?

 3. What will we do if they do not learn?

Center Point High School has received the prestige of being a Title I school and will be afforded federal funding to supplement our school’s existing programs. The funds will be used for assisting students who experience academic difficulties, to purchase additional materials to meet and advance students’ needs, and to finance parent involvement training activities and resources. Being a Title I school also ensures that parents will be involved in a decision making capacity and will be informed regarding parent rights concerning the qualifications of our classroom teachers. Below the Parents’ Right-To-Know is provided.

Parents’ Right-To-Know

As a parent of a student attending a Title I eligible school in the Jefferson County school district, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your child. Federal law permits you to request certain information about your child’s classroom teachers and requires us to give you this information in a timely manner when so requested. If you would like to receive this information, please contact me at 205-379-3400.

My greatest aspirations for this school year and for our immediate future are that we focus on learning, have informed parents and attain our desired instructional goals.

I am truly looking forward to working with each of you. Let us all continue to learn and strive to have a great school year!


Van A. Phillips, Principal
