Welcome to Wylie E. Groves High School, Home of the Falcons!
Dear Groves Family,
As the Interim Principal at Groves High School, I am honored to serve this community known for its high academic standards, student leadership, and commitment to diversity. When Dr. Roberson assumed her duties in central office here in Birmingham, I was asked to return to Groves for the remainder of the school year and I am delighted to do so. Having spent nearly 39 years in Birmingham, 32 of which were at Groves, I know firsthand what a terrific place this is.
Groves is indeed a special place. As a high school that offers a comprehensive program of academic and elective classes, athletics, fine arts, and student activities, we are proud of the accomplishments of our students both in and out of the classroom. We pride ourselves as a diverse community of learners that values individuals and fosters intellectual excellence, personal development, social responsibility, and ethical standards.
At Groves, building positive student-teacher relationships and a feeling of community is key to student success. In addition, collaboration with our parent community is integral to helping our students achieve at the highest of levels. Together we will continue to help our students set, attain, and celebrate personal and academic goals.
Interim Principal, Groves High School
