Mrs. Kris Wheat

I can’t think of a more exciting place to work and learn than a school…especially Johnson Street Global Studies.  I am your principal, Kris Wheat, and I feel both grateful and blessed to serve the students, teachers, and families of JSGS.  I began my career with Guilford County Schools as a middle school math teacher at Jamestown and then Welborn Middle. I have also worked as a Curriculum Facilitator and served as Assistant Principal at Northwest Middle School for three years.  This is my 7th year at Johnson Street Global Studies, and I am convinced we have the best staff, students, and families in Guilford County!

I am married to my high school sweetheart and have three Wheaties of my own.  In my time away from school, I enjoy running, reading, browsing Pinterest, and cheering for my Wheaties on the ball field/court.

Our mission at Johnson Street Global Studies is to create a learning experience that engages the whole child.  Whether it is through our Global Studies magnet program, rigorous core instructional activities, extended studies in physical education, music, art, and foreign language, or various clubs and service learning opportunities, there is something to challenge each student at JSGS.  We strive to be deliberate in our decisions, words, and actions in regards to student achievement. For the past 5 consecutive years, we have met or exceeded Expected Academic Growth.  We thank you for the opportunity to work with you and your child to ensure student/family success.
