Welcome from the Principal!

Welcome to McDowell High School, Home of the Titans! McDowell High is home to 1700 students and 152 faculty and staff.  Everyday our faculty and staff work extremely hard to provide a quality, standards based education to each and every student.   At McDowell High School students are afforded many opportunities to succeed through a variety of course offerings.  Students can enroll in an assortment of arts, foreign language, ROTC or AP courses. We have a very active CTE department which ranks as one of the highest in the state in terms of student earned, industry recognized credentials.  McDowell High has a superior relationship with the local community college with many students participating in the Career and College Promise program.  We are also proud that we are a 1:1 school with each student having a Chromebook during school and at home.  Because of this, we are able to offer many learning opportunities for students to become college and career ready. In addition, we offer online courses to help students get ahead or catch up on coursework. Our goal is for every student to graduate with a plan for a successful future. Everyone at MHS works towards this goal every day.

Mr. Edwin Spivey
