George Wythe High School

Dedicated To Excellence

  • k

    Welcome to George Wythe High School. Thank you for visiting our website where you can learn more about our school community.  Our mascot, the bulldog, is venerated as a breed for their ability to stay the course despite adversity. Hence the phrase “tenacity of a bulldog”. Here we embody this tenacity through our willingness to stay on the path to success. This resilience is fortified through collaboration. Parents, teachers, staff, administrators, and community members work in concert to support students as we clear a pathway to their productive post-secondary endeavors. As we return to in person instruction it is imperative that we embrace each other in route to securing the school wide vision. 

     

    As your principal, I am committed to “leading Wythe love”.   This philosophy is informed by three aims,  1) to provide for the needs of the whole student, 2) to ensure rigorous instruction is delivered in every classroom every day, and 3) to ensure equity.  

     

    We envision a school that provides each student with challenging opportunities in a culture where creativity, respect, and authentic enthusiasm for learning exist. One where all strive to be responsible, motivated citizens of strong character, one that embraces a strong partnership with our diverse communities, and one that promotes a passionate commitment to BULLDOG PRIDE.

     

    Our skilled and devoted staff are committed to making a difference. They want to have a positive impact on your child and above all, they want to provide them with an engaging and joyful learning experience that supports them in becoming independent learners.  Our teachers are always working to get better at what they do through personal self-development and participation in a wide variety of professional development activities. They model life-long learning for our students and never settle for anything less than their best! Thank you to our incredible staff for their amazing professionalism and incredible energy and their commitment to our students.

     

    Great schools always come back to the relationship between the child and the teacher. Be sure and find ways to engage yourself in school life – your child will notice and respond. There are numerous opportunities for parental involvement. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. May we all be present for the joy of learning, the satisfaction of a job well done, and the comfort that comes from belonging to a community.

     

    To my students, staff, families, and community; I am so honored to be your servant leader. Thank you for the opportunity to work with such an amazing school community. I encourage you to stop in or call me to share ideas, concerns, or questions. I wish your family, and especially your student(s), great success this school year.

     

    If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to say hi, please feel free to contact me via email at rparker2@rvaschools.net  or by phone  804-780-5037.

  • Click here -> "Spring SOL In-Person Parent-Student Intent Form"

    Standards of Learning (SOL) Assessments are approaching and we want families to understand their options when it comes to testing. To review options and let us know of your intentions for the Spring SOL assessments, please complete the survey at www.rvaschools.net/sol.

    While most RPS students are receiving virtual instruction, the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) and the United States Education Department (USED) require some tests for students in grades 3 to 12 to be administered in-person. 

    To reduce the risk to both staff and students, we have implemented robust health and safety protocols. However, we understand that some families may not yet be comfortable sending students to schools to test.

    Please complete this brief intent form by April 16, 2021. 

     

    Si bien la mayoría de los estudiantes de RPS están recibiendo instrucción virtual, el Departamento de Educación de Virginia (VDOE) y el Departamento de Educación de los Estados Unidos (USED) requieren que algunos exámenes para los estudiantes que atienden los grados 3 a 12 se administren en persona.

    Para reducir el riesgo tanto para el personal como para los estudiantes, hemos implementado protocolos sólidos de salud y seguridad. Sin embargo, entendemos que es posible que algunas familias aún no se sientan cómodas enviando estudiantes a las escuelas para que examinen.

    Complete este breve formulario de intención antes del 16 de abril de 2021.

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - September 21, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, On behalf of RPS, I want to extend our heartfelt sympathies to the two students who were injured in the shooting yesterday at Heritage High School in Newport News. Thankfully, both students will soon heal physically. The emotional trauma, however, may last for quite some time. I pray that these young people have the support they need to process yesterday's events and ultimately move through them. I also want to acknowledge the fear and anxiety in our own community related to a number of disturbing social media posts about RPS high schools over the last 48 hours. Please know that we take every potential threat extremely seriously. We're grateful for the security and investigative support we've received over the past two days (and continue to receive) from the Richmond Police Department and the US Department of Homeland Security. I assure you that we will continue to remain vigilant, as our number one priority is – and always will be – the safety of the RPS family.
