Principal's Message

Brenda K. Betancourt

"I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all students and parents to another exciting year at Kenneth White Junior High. The 2015-2016 academic year promises to be another prosperous year for our campus.

Over the last several years, the efforts of our students and teachers have helped bring recognition, honors and awards to our campus. These accomplishments have helped install a competitive spirit, winning attitude and pride in our students. In order to continue these winning traditions, students, teachers and parents must be committed to excellence. This commitment to excellence must be reflected in all our daily practices. We must maintain high levels of structure in our daily routines, respect one another and expect high levels of academic rigor in every classroom.

While academics is the ultimate driving force behind all that we do at KWJH, it is also our mission to develop a well-rounded student. For that reason, extracurricular programs have been made available to all students. Our fine arts, athletic, UIL and STEM programs are an integral part of our organization.

I am honored to be able to serve as Principal at Kenneth White Junior High and I am looking forward to working with you to fulfill your child’s educational needs.

On behalf of K. White Jr. High faculty and staff, I thank you in advance for all your support.

Let’s Go, Hawks!"
