Dear Dunwoody High School Community -

I am excited to share that a new principal has been named for Dunwoody High. Please help me welcome and congratulate Mr. Tom Bass as the new Principal of Dunwoody High School! Mr. Bass is coming with several years of assistant principal experience from a neighboring district. He also has many years of experience at Dunwoody High School, previously serving as a teacher, coach, and an assistant principal.

I am very confident that Mr. Bass is the perfect fit for DHS. With his experience, enthusiasm, and in-depth knowledge of the Dunwoody community; and with your support, he will continue the atmosphere of excellence that currently exists at the school. He is the definition of Wildcat Pride! He will begin transitioning next week. The administrative team and I will be communicating with Mr. Bass to ensure a smooth transition. You will be hearing from him soon.

I would also like to extend a special thank you to the Parent Advisory Committee for participating in the selection process!
Feel free to reach out to me with questions. Enjoy the last few weeks of your summer!!
