Welcome to the Hale Center High School Page!

We are coming off two of the strangest, most challenging years most of us have experienced. Covid 19 has presented challenges that have not been seen in generations.  With those challenges have come opportunities. Opportunities to help others, to learn new methods and techniques of learning, to develop skills in areas that we didn’t know we needed skills, and so many more have allowed us to grow through the tough times. Our students and staff have persevered and come through stronger because of it. In what we hope will be a more “normal” year, we are excited to have teams playing, to have fans in the stands, to take field trips, to be allowed to do group work in the classroom, and to enjoy the gift of being together as a school community! We look forward to soaring to new heights together!

 It is a great day to be an Owl!



It is an honor and a privilege to enter into my fourth year as the principal at HCHS. The opportunity to serve our students, teachers, coaches, support staff, and our community is one that I am humbled to be entrusted with by our superintendent and school board.

My educational philosophy has always been rooted in developing relationships. Students invest more in learning, teachers enjoy their profession more, and schools begin to operate as a family when relationships are built and strengthened through shared positive experiences. It is my goal to continue the open and accepting environment that has been developed at HCHS, where students feel safe to grow and expect to be challenged daily by a knowledgable and caring staff. 

Small town schools are so often the heartbeat of the community and we hope that you will take every opportunity to come to our campus and be a part of the small things that happen daily and the large events that will fill our town with excitement weekly. 

Thank you for visiting our website.  I hope that this school year will find you wanting to be a part of our story.
