New Principal at St. Johns High
Charleston County School District (CCSD) has announced Stephen P. Larson as Principal of St. Johns High School. Larson joined the District in November 2016 from Broward County Public Schools in Florida where he previously served as a principal. After having served in an interim capacity as principal within CCSD, as well as successfully leading the District 9 Task Force over the past several months, Larson emerged as a proven candidate for the principalship.
Current St. John’s principal, Andre Dukes, announced his resignation to students and staff today in order to take another position in Greenville County School District this spring.
“Mr. Larson is a proven leader in the education field,” said CCSD Executive Director of Secondary Learning, Kim Wilson. “His ability to build quality relationships with all stakeholders will endear him to the St. John’s community. We are fortunate to have someone of his caliber to step in and continue to provide quality leadership at St. John’s High School.”
Larson has a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a specialization in Spanish and a Masters in Special Education from the University of Oregon. He completed his Ed.S. at Portland State University in 2008.
