Welcome to Carthage High School!
I am excited to officially introduce myself as the new principal of Carthage High School. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to lead CHS and work with the exceptional students, qualified and hard-working staff members, and supportive community surrounding our school! My official start date was July 1, but Mr. Huntley and I have worked closely these last few months to make for a smooth transition as we move into the new school year.
On a personal note, I have dedicated over twenty-one years to the field of education in the Carthage R-9 School District. Over the past twenty-one years, I have served as a junior high and high school FACS teacher, coach, and high school assistant principal. Carthage R-9 School District has provided me not only a rewarding career, but a place for both my children to receive a top-notch education while developing the skills necessary to thrive at the next stage in life. As principal, I’m eager to give future Carthage Tigers that very same opportunity; to lead initiatives and continue to establish educational programs with student learning at the focus.
At Carthage High School, we embrace the many opportunities to partner with the students, staff members, teachers, administrators, and parents to make education happen for each student. Student academic and extracurricular success can only reach its fullest potential when we work together. Through curricular and extracurricular activities, together, we will continue providing a quality learning environment with a goal of preparing all CHS students for college and/or future careers. Please join us in this endeavor to ensure each student’s experience at Carthage High School is meaningful and rewarding.
We look forward to an outstanding year ahead! Go Tigers!
Mrs. Angela Holman
