Principal's Message

  • Dear Tiger Family,

    Welcome to the 2023-2024 Academic School Year! I am honored and feel privileged to be your principal. As we enter this school year, I want to express to you that my deepest desire is to ensure that each of you has a very successful school year. For all students returning to Sussex Central High School, welcome back! For those new to SCHS, I welcome you into a close-knit and prideful family that will take you to the next level in your education.

    We have amazing faculty and staff at Sussex Central who will provide you with everything you need to grow socially and academically.  We need your commitment to your education to ensure that you produce nothing short of excellence

    This year, I encourage you to rally around the theme of “Excellence is the Expectation”.  To show excellence means that one possesses qualities to a high degree.  Every one of you already holds qualities of excellence.  You will be challenged with showing that excellence at SCHS.  Excellence should be visible every day in the classroom, as well as through your participation in athletics, clubs, or extracurricular activities. You will determine the degree to which the expectation of excellence is achieved through all of your endeavors.

    To all of our proud parents and caregivers, I invite you to model and partner with us throughout the school year as we instill excellence into our students. Research shows that students will have the greatest possibility for success if support structures are in place at home.

    Let’s make this school year your best year ever as a student.  If there is ever anything you need, please do not hesitate to stop by my office. 

    With Tiger Pride!

    Drexel W. Pierce, Jr., Ed.S.
