Wood Memorial High School



It is my pleasure to begin my administration as Principal at Wood Memorial Junior/Senior High School. 


I believe in what East Gibson School Corporation has posted on the website: Rigor, Relevance, Relationships.  Rigor is achieved through the use of high-leverage instructional strategies by high-quality teachers on a daily basis.  Relevance is achieved by making connections between what we expect our students to be able to do and how they will apply it - now and in the future.  Most important is the formation of relationships.  World-Class Teacher, Rita Pierson once said, “Children don’t learn from people they don’t like.”  


One thing is certain - students are most successful in school when educators and families work together for what is best for ALL students.  We can work together with clear expectations and open communication while helping our students become successful citizens for whatever path they choose - workforce, post-secondary education, military, family-building, etc. 


I am looking forward to being a part of the Trojan Nation here at Waldo J. Wood Memorial High School.  As we move through YEAR ZERO of my administration, I will focus on supporting my teachers and staff so they can support our students and families. May every decision we make this year be geared toward what is best for our students.  


Your Partner in the Education, 


Amanda D. Crews, Principal 

Wood Memorial Jr./Sr. High School
