Welcome to the Sumner High School Principal's Corner for Students in Grades 11-12
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 and new materials.
As leader of Sumner, I need and 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-plus years ago!
I look forward to meeting you soon!
Dr. Michael Triplett, Principal

From these conversations, it is clear there is a collegial partnership between all stakeholders to provide the best possible academic experience for our students. I look forward to fostering these relationships and working with teachers and staff to provide a world-class educational experience for each Sumner scholar.
