Welcome to Dean B. Pruette SCALE (School-Community Alternative Learning Environment) Academy, Home of the Eagles! I am the PROUD principal of “Pruette Academy”, the alternative school in High Point, Guilford County School District. We are truly the place where we believe “Alternative Education is NOT an Alternative to Education”! It is an honor to serve you in this capacity as we provide high quality instructional delivery EVERYDAY for our students. I come to you with eleven years of educational experience spanning grades 6-12 as a middle school math teacher, an instructional coach, and a middle school administrator.
I am passionate about making a difference and empowering our students to positively impact the world with their gifts and talents. We have PHENOMENAL students at Pruette Academy who are the reason and motivation for everything we do! As a school, we will work diligently with our families and community partners to create LEADERS who will impact the world. This will be done through a laser-focus on literacy, service learning opportunities and character education initiatives for our students.
I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to our staff and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure our students’ success. I have a BS in Electrical Engineering from Virginia Tech and have received a Masters of Arts in Teaching & Learning, Master of School Administration and Specialist in Education degree from UNC-Greensboro. I am presently pursuing my Doctorate in Educational Leadership from UNC-Greensboro.
I will work hard to cultivate an environment where excellence is expected, students are challenged, and differences are valued as we equip our students with career and college readiness skills.
I anticipate a very successful year as we support the academic, social and emotional growth of every student here at Pruette Academy. I’m a firm believer that students don’t care what you know, until they know you care; therefore we pride ourselves as being an institution that is restorative and reflective. Being a part of your educational village, I am here to help you in any way possible. I believe EVERY student in our building can and will achieve greatness with all of us working together.
I look forward to working with you this school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me as we move forward.
GO EAGLES… Let’s soar together!!
With Eagle Pride,
Tanicka Robeson, Ed.S.
