Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!
My name is Travis Abbott and I am very proud to be serving the Meigs Local community in my third year as principal of Meigs High School. I am a 1996 graduate of MHS with fourteen years of classroom experience as a social studies teacher, all at MHS, and I am entering into my fourth year as a school administrator.
Our goal at MHS is for all students to find their passion in life and to learn the skills that they need to pursue it. We offer many classes and programs of study that will help them do exactly that! Our students have the opportunity to earn industry credentials and college credit without ever having to leave our building. This places our graduates ahead of their peers of other high schools in the job market and on college applications. I highly encourage all students to explore the options that they have available to them so that they can begin to pursue their post-secondary plans.
In June of 2018 Meigs High School was recognized by U.S. News and World Report as one of America’s Best High Schools! I’m very proud of the students and staff for all of their dedication to making MHS one of the best schools in the nation to receive an education! It is an honor to receive this award and we are committed to building upon these successes to continue to prepare our students to meet the demands of the future.
We would like to welcome two new staff members to Meigs High School who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with our students. Mr. Mark Griffin will be serving as our new Criminal Justice instructor and Mr. Ryan Chapman who will be joining the MHS family in the role of Intervention Specialist. Mr. Chapman is replacing Mr. Mike Chancey who has taken over as the new Assistant Principal of Meigs High School. Welcome aboard gentlemen and we expect great things from each of you!
At Meigs High School, we are all here to help our students reach their fullest potential in the classroom, and in life, and to make a positive impact on the world around them. We continue to serve our community with pride and we are looking forward to an excellent school year!
