Kingsley Charter Elementary School welcomed Brent McBride as the new principal this year.
McBride served six years at Heards Ferry Elementary in Sandy Springs, first as assistant principal and then as principal. Before Heards Ferry, McBride was an Instructional Technology Specialist in Forsyth County and a classroom teacher in Bibb County.
One of McBride’s first goals for Kingsley Charter School is to increase Kingsley’s CCRPI score. The CCRPI, which stands for “Career and College Ready Performance Index,” is a comprehensive measure of a school’s success.
McBride plans to continue Kingsley’s focus on increasing rigor and challenge in the classroom, to better prepare students for life-long success. His goal is to create a student-friendly learning environment where active student engagement is seen throughout the school. By offering unique learning opportunities, Kingsley is creating a well-rounded elementary experience for all children.
kick-off the school year, Mr. McBride will hold his first “Principal’s
Coffee” for the community from 9-10 a.m., on Sept. 11; and 6-7 p.m., on Sept. 24, at the school.
Located in northeast Dunwoody, Kingsley serves approximately 600 elementary students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade and is a feeder school for Peachtree Charter Middle School.
