Kingsley Charter Elementary School Welcomes New Principal, Mr. Brent McBride

Principal McBride, Kaptain Kingsley, and Assistant Principal Seabrook

Kingsley Charter Elementary School welcomes a new principal this year, Mr. Brent McBride.

Before joining Kingsley, Mr. McBride served six years at Heards Ferry Elementary school in Fulton County; first as assistant principal and then as principal. Before Heards Ferry, Mr. McBride was an Instructional Technology Specialist in Forsyth County and a classroom teacher in Bibb County.

One of McBride’s first goals for Kingsley Charter School is to increase Kingsley’s CCRPI score. The CCRPI, which stands for “Career and College Ready Performance Index”, is a comprehensive measure of a school’s success.

Mr. McBride plans to continue Kingsley’s focus on increasing rigor and challenge in the classroom, to better prepare students for life-long success. His goal is to create a student-friendly learning environment where active student engagement is seen throughout the school. By offering unique learning opportunities, Kingsley is creating a well-rounded elementary experience for all children.

To kick-off the school year, Mr. McBride is holding his first “Principal’s Coffee” for the community. The “Principal’s Coffee” will be held at Kingsley Charter School on September 11th, between 9:00 to 10:00 am. There will be an alternate session on September 24th, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm, for community members who cannot attend the September 11th meeting.

In a recent welcome letter to the Kingsley Community, Mr. McBride said, “As I transition to my new role as principal of Kingsley, I see great potential. . . As a community, we absolutely have the potential to do great things at Kingsley.”

Please join us in welcoming Mr. Brent McBride to the Kingsley Charter School community.
