Principal's Message

  • Gregg Shoultz West High has been a dynamic institution since opening in 1968, and I am very pleased to be part of the tradition of excellence that has been built here. This year we are expecting our biggest student body ever—2,008 students as we start the year. To meet the challenge of educating more than 2,000 students, we have a fantastic group of teachers, administrators, secretaries, paraprofessionals, custodians, and kitchen workers who number nearly 200 strong. 

    The administrative team is an outstanding one. My office is located in the West Wing, and I can be reached at (319) 688-1090 or by email at shoultz.gregg@iowacityschools.org. The main office, phone number (319) 688-1050, houses Assistant Principals Molly Abraham and Luke DeVries, and they have a great track record supporting students, parents, and teachers. Ms. Abraham specializes in special programs while Mr. DeVries coordinates many academic programs, including acting as our liaison with the Kirkwood Regional Center on the University of Iowa Campus. Athletic Director Craig Huegel can be reached at (319) 688-1055 for any questions involving our extracurricular programs. Dean Maria Martin works with me in the West Wing Office, and she works primarily with underclassmen, and Dean Justin Colbert works with the upperclassmen. Rounding out the administrative team are Junior High AD and MTSS coordinator Jeff Wieck and Career Center Coordinator Russ Johnson.

    OUR MISSION

    • Challenge each student with a rigorous curriculum taught by a diverse, professional, and caring staff
    • Maintain collaborative partnerships with our families and community
    • Ensure students become responsible, independent learners capable of making informed decisions in a democratic and global community
