This is BIG!!! Congrats to Mrs. Margaret Campbell voted Principal of the Year yesterday morning at an Award Ceremony at the Jamaica Pegasus by the LASCO/ MINISTRY OF EDUCATION Award Panel.
There are over 200 high schools in Jamaica and to be chosen top dog is simply awesome!! She became Principal in 2006, taken over the reigns from Dr. Fred Kennedy.
At the time the school was in a tight spot; ranked a failing school with a overall ranking of 43rd place in that year by Education Consultant and Commentator Dr. Dennis Minott.
Since then, the discipline has improved tremendously and so as our academic ranking. In 2014, we reached No. 14 for High School Ranking. In 2018, we were ranked No. 24. So too has our performance in CSEC and CAPE Exams improved significantly in recent times. Prior to 2014, we would rarely made the National and Regional Top 10 Best in subject areas. Since that time, we have had multiple candidates from STGC making these list consistently.
We are strong in the sciences, business subjects, foreign languages, industrial arts, law and digital media. We haven’t been doing too badly in High School Sports either with top performances in football, basketball, rugby, lacrosse and cricket in the past five years.
We salute Mrs. Campbell on this huge Award!!
