Superintendent’s Message


In more than 30 years in education, I can honestly say I have never been more proud to be a part of a community and a school system than I am to be Superintendent of Kingsport City Schools. It is inspiring to live and work in an environment where all children are nurtured and encouraged to reach greatness.

As a school system, our vision is to provide a world class education to every single student that walks into our schools. We are extremely proud of our award-winning school system and the tremendous achievements and opportunities our students enjoy. Our commitment and pledge to you is to always focus on recognizing and cultivating the unique talents present in every child.

Thank you for visiting our website and exploring all that Kingsport City Schools has to offer!
