Principal's Message

  • Dear Challenger Raven Parents and Students,

    It is a privilege to serve Challenger Middle and High School and the Bethel community as the principal of Challenger.  I consider it an honor to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a longstanding history of helping students to graduate from high school and become ready to take the next step in their education.  The privilege of working with such a talented and dedicated faculty and staff, a tremendous student body, and a supportive network of parents and community members will only help push Challenger towards new heights. 

    The teachers, staff and administration at Challenger are committed to providing high quality education, along with social and emotional support that will meet the needs and interests of all the students here on campus.  Each educator is student-centered and has been challenged to engage students and provide optimal learning environments in their classrooms.  As your principal, I challenge each and every student to take full advantage of all that is offered here at CHS, so that you can make your school life successful, enjoyable, and most importantly, meaningful.  I truly believe that every student at Challenger has the ability and the potential to accomplish great things!  Beginning with the first days of school, I challenge each of you to begin developing, displaying and honing your Raven Pride, which will help lay the foundation for your future success.

    Please take the time to review the information on this website and in the Student Handbook carefully. These resources contain important information that will help guide you through the expectations we have for you as a Challenger student. It also provides resources for your successful navigation of campus, resources and support staff available to you and your families.  I also want to remind you that your teachers, counselors, and administrators are available to provide assistance. Your questions and concerns are always welcome!

    As you work through your years at Challenger, I encourage each of you to set goals and standards that will be above those set by most high school students. Your time at Challenger is foundational to your future success, and we are confident about the positive impact each of our students will make in the world. 

    Together we will continue to move forward and find new ways to help all students achieve their goals and be college or career ready by graduation day.  

    Make it a great year…we are going to SOAR!

    Jeff Johnson (He/Him)
