Congratulations Principal Johnson

By Henry Bryant
Stephanie Johnson, principal of Maynard Jackson High School (MJHS), an Atlanta public school in The Porch Press area, has been named one of six finalists by the Georgia Association of Secondary School Principals for Principal of the Year. All of the candidates are being interviewed, and by the time you read this, one of them will have been chosen. The finalists were selected from a large pool of applicants from across the state. Nominations were based on an extensive performance review of the schools where the principals serve. The recognition program is sponsored by the Georgia and National Associations of Secondary School Principals.
The Georgia winner will represent the state in the competition for National Principal of the Year, sponsored by the National Association of Secondary School Principals.   The Principal of the Year program recognizes principals that excel in educational leadership, resolving complex problems, developing self and others, and community service.
Stephanie Johnson came to MJHS in 2012 with a track record of exemplary leadership, having led the turnaround of Sequoyah Middle School and Jonesboro High School in Clayton County. Since then, Principal Johnson and her team have been hard at work at MJHS, and her “Mission Possible” credo is generating results. Under her leadership, the International Baccalaureate program is growing; partnerships with Georgia Tech and Atlanta Metropolitan College provide exciting new options for students; the rooftop garden and agriscience program have been initiated; athletics programming has been expanded to include every Georgia High School Association sport; foreign exchange programs are up and running; and extracurricular activities have been greatly expanded (with a recent district championship win by the Academic Decathlon team).
In 2014, Principal Johnson was a recipient of the Atlanta Families’ Award for Excellence in Education.
