The Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District recently recruited Johnetta Wiley to Cleveland Heights High School to serve as administrative principal.
“Dr. Wiley is a proven leader with a commitment to academic accountability,” Superintendent Doug Heuer said. “She has an impressive track record of inspiring students, collaborating effectively with colleagues, and helping those around her perform at their best. We’re thrilled that she’s agreed to be a part of the Heights team.”
Prior to joining the CH-UH school district, Wiley served for 10 years as the principal at South High School within the City of Columbus School District. She also worked to develop a new teacher evaluation system as part of the Race to the Top Teacher Evaluation Committee. In addition, she served as the assistant principal at South High School Urban Academy for four years, and as a science teacher at South High School for 10 years.
Wiley earned her doctorate of education with a focus on educational leadership from Nova Southeastern University in North Miami Beach, Fla.; her principal certification with a focus on educational administration from the University of Dayton; and her masters of education from Ashland University.
Wiley is the recipient of numerous awards. The district Parent Teacher Association in Columbus recognized her as the 2012 Educator of the Year, and the State of Mississippi presented her with a humanitarian award in 2011. Under her leadership, U.S. News and World Report recognized South High School as one of America’s 100 Best High Schools in 2010.
“Parents and students have been meeting with Dr. Wiley in recent weeks and welcoming her with open arms,” Heuer said. “We’re thrilled to have her working with our students and Heights High staff.”
