Principal Andre M. Dukes
I am a native of Kingstree, South Carolina and attended the public schools of Williamsburg County. I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Charleston Southern University. Before coming to St. John’s High School, I was an assistant principal at West Ashley High School for one year and three years as associate principal for curriculum and instruction at St. John’s High School. I spent two years at Cane Bay High School as the Student Intervention Specialist/Instructional Coach and five years as a classroom teacher at James Island Charter High School. I was recently recognized by the South Carolina Association of School Administrators (SCASA) as the 2014 South Carolina Secondary Assistant Principal of the Year. For me, schools should be an integral part of the community they inhabit. They should also be focused on high expectations for all students, and through developmentally appropriate and best teaching practices, give students the skills to achieve these expectations.
