  • New Vaccination Required!


    Before our 7th grade and 11th grade students start 8th and 12th grade (respectively) in 2016-17, they must receive a vaccine against meningitis, an infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. 


    Students entering 8th grade must also receive the Tdap vaccine, so parents can get them done during the same visit to the doctor. If your student going into the 12th grade received the first meningitis immunization at age 16 or later, a second one will not be needed. Otherwise, two are required for 12th grade students. Please have this immunization done as soon as possible, and make sure your School Nurse receives a copy. Please contact your School Nurse or the Nurse Coordinator at 314-345-4401 for questions.

Dr. Michael Triplett  

Welcome Back Bulldog Family!
My name is Dr. Michael D. Triplett and it’s my honor to serve as Principal of the Charles Sumner High School. Hopefully your summer has been spent enjoying your families, resting and vacationing to revive yourselves. A new school year presents opportunities for various beginnings – new/old classes, new/old faces, new materials and in our case, a new leader… 
As the new leader of Sumner, I need and will rely on the support of ALL stakeholders: Students, Families, Staff, Community and Faith Based Partnerships to ensure that we maintain a safe, engaging and high quality learning environment for all students as well as a safe and welcoming environment of partnership for parents and community.
This year, we will focus on processes that spur continual advancement:  evaluating what we have, determining what we can do to improve, and identifying what we need to make those improvements.

I am committed to restoring, strengthening and maintaining the Bulldog Pride and Legacy of Excellence that began 140 years ago!

I look forward to meeting you soon!
