• Welcome to Wylie E. Groves High School, Home of the Falcons!

    Dear Groves family,

    I would like to take a moment to extend a warm welcome to Groves, whether you are a new or returning family.

    As the Principal at Groves High School, I am honored to serve this community known for its high academic standards, student leadership, and commitment to diversity. As a lifelong learner with a Doctorate in Education Administration and Policy Studies from Wayne State University, I have been an educator for almost 20 years at the elementary and middle school levels, both in urban and suburban settings, and worked within the BPS district for last nine years. Groves has a special place in my heart as it provided my daughter, a Groves alumna, with a strong educational foundation that has carried her into adulthood.

    As I embark on my new leadership role at Groves, I want to share with you that I am passionate about children and their achievements, both academically and socially.   By collaborating with parents and staff, it is my intention to carry on the Groves tradition of high expectations and stellar achievement.  Together we will continue to make Groves a success!


    Dr. Embekka Roberson
