Happy 2017-2018 School Year! I would like to formally introduce myself as Principal Kimberly Long of Nottingham CAJT High School. I’ve previously held positions as the Special Education Dept. Head/Vocational Adjustment Counselor and Reading Specialist at Nottingham. It’s with great honor and pleasure that I’m charged to work with staff, students, parents, and community members in moving our school forward to turn great into the greatest!
We are going to have a wonderful school year! Nottingham received the distinct honor of being named a 2016 Missouri National School of Character, and we intend to continue the tradition of having great character as well as focus our efforts on our new school’s mission of students building positive character and having a successful transition from school to post-secondary independence. Nottingham is looking forward to an increased usage of technology in classrooms to foster more student centered learning and new partnerships with community organizations that will allow work and job training for our students after high school if applicable. I am excited to announce that Nottingham will be bringing aboard two new worksites this school year. WFF Custodial Facilities, which is on Washington University's campus and Destination Cafe', which is located on Morganford Ave in south St. Louis. These two worksites are going to allow our students to learn and complete tasks they usually wouldn't partake in until their graduation year. With them gaining skills in using light custodial tools, decorating treats, greeting the public in the cafe', our students will be more marketable in today's society for competitive work. As always, we want all of our Longhorns at school daily! This is the only way that they will be able to enhance their skills and learn all they can prior to their graduation and become law abiding adults.
If you have questions or would like to know more about our program, don’t hesitate to contact me 314-481-4095 or 314-243-5205.
