Principal's Message

Principal Chris Earl
     On behalf of the faculty and staff at Airport High School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to a new and exciting school year!  For those of you who have had children attend our school in the past, we are glad to have you returning.  For those of you who have a student attending Airport High School for the first time, we are pleased to have you as a part of our school community.
     Let me also take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Chris Earl, and I am not only honored to be serving as Airport High School’s Principal, I am a proud alumnus as well.  I have proudly served students as an educator for 19 years.  I started my career in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where I served as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal.  I have also served as an assistant principal in Richland School District One, and as a Principal in the Aiken County Public School District.  
     Airport High School has a strong sense of community and school pride, and I am happy to once again be a part of it!  I look forward to working with everyone this year in honoring our school’s past accomplishments, and I also look forward to contributing to our school’s success in the future.  One of our school’s missions is to prepare every student with the skills necessary to be college and career ready.  During the 2020-21 school year we plan on increasing the number of our students graduating college and career ready, increasing our school’s graduation rate, and raising our student academic performance levels.  
     In closing, I would like to again welcome all of you to the 2020-21 school year.  Please do not hesitate to stop by the main office or give us a call if we can assist you in any way during the school year.
Chris Earl
