Principal's Message

  • West High has been a dynamic institution since opening in 1968, and I am very pleased to be part of the tradition of excellence that has been built here. To meet the challenge of educating our students, we have a fantastic group of teachers, administrators, secretaries, paraprofessionals, custodians, and kitchen workers who number nearly 200 strong.

    The administrative team is an outstanding one. My office is located in the Main Office, and I can be reached at (319) 688-1050 or by email at gross.mitch@iowacityschools.org. The main office, phone number (319) 688-1050, also houses Assistant Principals Jenny Eustice, Maureen Head and Molly Abraham. They have a great track record supporting students, parents, and teachers. Athletic Director, Craig Huegel, can be reached at (319) 688-1055 for any questions involving our extracurricular programs.

    OUR MISSION
    • Challenge each student with a rigorous curriculum taught by a diverse, professional, and caring staff
    • Maintain collaborative partnerships with our families and community
    • Ensure students become responsible, independent learners capable of making informed decisions in a democratic and global community
