MPS names South High's next principal


Dear South High Community, 

I am pleased to announce Brett Stringer as the new principal of South High School, effective July 1.

Mr. Stringer was most recently a principal at Roaring Fork High School in Colorado. He has extensive experience in education, including as an English and English Learner teacher, professional development leader, teacher coach and mentor, and middle and high school administrator in Aurora and Denver. Mr. Stringer also has a proven history of prioritizing equity and collaborating with students in the decisions affecting them.

Mr. Stringer holds a master’s degree in administration and leadership from the University of Colorado, completed a principal fellowship with the Relay Graduate School of Education, and participated in the Urban School Leaders Institute at Harvard Graduate School of Education. He earned bachelor’s degrees in film production, marketing, and English from the University of Denver.

In talking about his new role, Mr. Stringer said he is excited to carry on Principal Aponte’s legacy of advocating for students and prioritizing relationships with them. “Throughout my career I have focused on listening to students, lifting up their voices, and creating spaces where they feel safe and welcome,” he said. “I’m energized by South High and its dynamic staff and can’t wait to get to work supporting our students and families. I look forward to getting to know all of you, taking an active role in our community, and continuing to move South to the next level. Principal Aponte has left a big legacy to live up to.”

Please join me in welcoming Principal Brett Stringer to the South community. We will send out more information about a formal opportunity to meet him later this summer. Thank you for your continued commitment to our students’ academic success.
