High School Principal

Welcome back to the 2019-20 school year at Elgin High School!


The 2019-20 school year will be one full of transition and expectations for all students at Elgin High School.  As we prepare for the new school year, we continue to make adjustments to curriculum and develop methods to assist in ALL students being successful in high school. The 2019-20 school year is quickly approaching, and it is exciting to look for the future and is a great time to be a Comet!


Being involved in your student’s education is proven as a contributing factor in their positive development both as a student and individual.  Seek opportunities to become involved in the school and encourage your student to do the same.  Studies show that students that are actively involved in school and school activities have a greater, positive academic performance.  One initial opportunity is with our Student Schedule and Chromebook Distribution Days.


Elgin High School will be having Student Schedule and Chromebook pick up days in mid August.  These times will be relayed to students through email, the Elgin High School website and through our all call system in early August.  These dates and times will enable students to review their schedule for the 2019-20 school year and prepare any questions or concerns as the new school year begins!


This time will also enable and require the update of all forms and materials required by Elgin High School and the state of Ohio.  All will have online access to make the necessary changes and modifications to current forms on file, while also completing any new forms or information that is required.


Elgin High School will also be implementing the following new programs to assist in your student’s education and provide them with opportunities for advancement and progress toward a graduation pathway.  These programs are Lean Six Sigma credentialing, Rise Up credentialing, and the Power of ICU work completion tracking system.


Please visit the school website ( and click on the High School link for more information concerning important dates and details for all students as the summer progresses as well as throughout the school year.


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!  We also encourage you and your student to be actively engaged in the activities and programs available to them as a student at Elgin High School!  Best of luck to all students for an exciting 2019-20 school year!  Go Comets!


Yours in Education,

Mr. Chad Cunningham
