Manitou Springs High School
Back To School - Welcome and Reminders
A Message From The Principal...
My name is Anna Conrad and I am humbled to partner with our community as the Manitou Springs High School Interim Principal for the 2022-2023 school year. At MSHS, we are deeply committed to our districtwide core values of relationships, deep learning, and opportunity. Everyday, I am overjoyed and inspired by the countless moments in which I observe these values: teachers excitedly asking students about their art show or soccer game, students leveraging advanced lab equipment to pursue their own inquiries, hundreds of 6th-12th grade students performing a trilingual song in front of our community during World Language and Culture Night, and the student body roaring as one mustang herd during assemblies, and so many more.
As the Interim Principal, I am thrilled to continue our vibrant work with students, families, and staff members as we grow together at MSHS. My personal core values of leadership, learning, and love align closely with those of the district, and I find great inspiration in working with our numerous stakeholders. Building on our legacy, I am excited to continue to serve MSHS as we collaboratively enhance our culture, data-driven instruction, leadership, and communication. Together, we are Mustang Strong!
