Welcome to Dallas Center-Grimes High School!

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve as the principal at Dallas Center-Grimes High School.  The students and staff in our building are simply incredible, and it is my pleasure to work tirelessly on their behalf.  Dallas Center-Grimes High School is such a special place; always putting relationships and high levels of learning as our primary focus. We have a highly dedicated staff that comes to school excited to work

with our young people to assist them in every way possible to reach their goals in high school and beyond.  Our staff members are the best at what they do; helping every student that walks our hallways achieve their full potential.

Dallas Center-Grimes High School offers a variety of ways to challenge students, peak their interests, and encourage their involvement throughout our school and community.  We are an AP Honor Roll District, offering multiple AP and dual credit courses for our students. DCG delivers a significant number of core and elective courses, where truly every student can find the classes they are most interested in taking. 

Our student body is highly involved in extra-curricular activities and clubs.  Our fine arts program and athletic teams are some of the strongest in the state. We believe student involvement is a critical component of the high school experience.

At the heart of DCG is the feeling of family.  We put the needs of every student and staff member first.  Students and staff are the backbone of our outstanding high school.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
