A Message from Our Principal

Dear Kings Ridge Preparatory Family and Friends,

It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself, Barbara Bagwill, as the new principal at Kings Ridge. My passion for education and supporting the success of all students has been shaped over the past 30 years as an elementary teacher, middle grades science teacher, assistant principal, and principal in Florida and Arizona. In each of my roles, I have sought to ensure the success of each student and the school, by providing the best instructional and extracurricular opportunities and supports possible. Similarly, it is my number one priority at Kings Ridge to ensure that every student receives the most well-rounded education possible. A well-rounded education means outstanding instruction from top-notch teachers, as well as extracurricular opportunities and supports that enable students to develop character, cultivate passions, and explore the world outside of the classroom. I received my master’s degree in 2008 in the area of K-12 Studies in Education. I am currently working on my doctoral program at GCU in organizational leadership. I look forward to a great year ahead of us!

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.  Martin Luther King, Jr.

Sincerely,

Barbara J. Bagwill

Barbara J. Bagwill
Principal
