Principal's Message
Mr. Cunningham

Mr. Chad Cunningham
High School Principal

Welcome back to the 2017-18 school year at Elgin High School.  This school year promises to be one of upmost excitement as Elgin High School continues to strive for “Excellence”.  Elgin High School has high standards and expectations for each student and ask our students to make the commitment to be successful academic learners, responsible and active members of a learning community, and be willing, contributing members of a positive, responsible, and caring environment.  We strive to provide a challenging curriculum to all students that will provide them with the tools necessary to be successful in their future endeavors. 


Elgin High School is also very excited to be involved in the Standards Based Grading program through High Schools That Work.  This program provides grants for our staff members to attend Professional Development that assist in the improvement and development of the curriculum for our students and how they are graded in the classroom.  Elgin High School will be participating in the Standards Based Grading pilot program over the next two school years and communication with detailed information will be shared with students and parents as the initiative is instituted.  This is an exciting program that will benefit students and their comprehension and understanding of the content they are learning.


Students, high school is a time to prepare yourself for the next steps of your life.  It is the time to set goals, determine the college and/or career path that you as an individual want to pursue, and work to achieve all of them.  We challenge all of our students to be involved in all aspects of the school community including academics, extra and co-curricular activities, and the community.  All of us at Elgin High School are here to assist in your preparation for your future.


Elgin High School is here for you and at anytime we are here to help. If at any time you or your student is in need of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the high school office to set up an appointment with any staff member. We look forward to working with both the students and parents to make the high school experience a great one! Best of luck to all students for an exciting 2017-18 school year! Go Comets!
