Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Mountain Heritage High School!  We invite you to look through our website for information and resources.  Our administration, faculty, and staff are conscientiously working together to meet the individual needs of our students.  As part of the Yancey County School System, we will always strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment that empowers all Cougars to achieve their full potential as lifelong learners and global citizens. 

We expect our teachers and staff to be professional, while having high expectations of both students and themselves.  We expect students to respect their classmates, teachers, and staff.   We expect parents/families to “fight for” their children, while supporting teachers, administrators, and our school system.  It is my belief that we must all continue taking initiative for the good of others.  The initiative that my own family has witnessed from everyone, in this community and school system, has been life-changing for us.

It is essential that we promote communication and trust with students, parents/families, and community members.  We will make a concerted effort to do so through conversations, phone calls, email, social media, radio, newspapers, and all other ways possible.  If there are ways that we can improve in those areas, please let us know.  We hope many meaningful relationships are formed on the journey to graduation!
